Trip to Riviera Maya (Spring 2012 Day 6)...More activities and more food

In the afternoon, we had a nice calming time by doing traditional Mexican ceramic painting.

I picked a tiny cup to paint, and Jason did a large skull. It was a lot of fun. The painted ceramics will be sealed and ready to be picked up tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing the final results.

We also took a cocktail making class. Jason made Road Runner cocktail (white rum, dark rum, amaretto, orange juice, pineapple juice, coconut cream, grenadine, etc.). I learned to make Silk Stocking (gin, anise liqueur, creme de cacao, grenadine, evaporated milk, and ice). We also learned how to make Mango Lolo (I think it's our bartender's original...tequila, vodka, rum, gin, mango juice, coconut juice, etc.). All were really nice!

After spa time was sunset Champagne time in our balcony. Again, we didn't hear nothing but the ocean and birds here.

We had good time at dinner at one of the resort's restaurants again. The vegetables in my salad were entirely from the resort's organic garden. Excellent! Beef carpaccio with guacamole was delicious also.

Jason had their special prime rib. It looked and tasted beautiful! I had brochette grande, which included pork, chicken, shrimp and vegetables. Very lovely. Not to mention that I love seafood so much from here, but also meat is really superb from Yucatan. They must be happy animals.

My dessert, Rum Baba, was made to order. A chef sliced a piece of sweet bread, then rum was heated and lit to pour over the bread. The bread was almost completely saturated with the rum and really strong...almost like eating a shot or rum. And, I liked it.

Another great fun day was over.
