We woke at 4:30 to gather our belongings and pack up the rental car. I spent some time the night before with one of the hotel's wet white washcloths and a jar of touch-up paint trying to make the car's passenger fender look right. Despite the car rental place being only 100 yards further down the road than the hotel, I nearly hit someone in the dark who made a swerving exit into a private property (at 5:30am). The car rental guy didn't notice or didn't care about my touch-up job so I gave him all our remaining MXN cash (US$13) after he shuttled us to the airport next door.
The flight was uneventful barring a nuisance sitting behind me. A single 45 year old guy behind me on the flight from Cancun had "a big problem" with me asking him to mute his CandyCrush iPad game mid-flight. Apparently he didn't have a problem kicking the crap out of my unreclined seat the prior 30 minutes nor regaling all the blondes on his row with his travel prowess (when someone can only describe China as "nice", they are full of crap). "Sir, I am armed with a sleeping baby
and I'm not afraid to wake her up". I didn't actually say that because his indignation at my request completely segfaulted my brain.
The KCI blue buses were running with the usual efficiency of 3 stacked up at once and it took us 30 minutes to get out of the lot (I lost the car for a few minutes too).
All in all, any trip without permanent damage is a success and this one is no different.
