Thanks to Tropicante Restaurant for the great lunch and fun time, being on the beach is always a plus!!!!
Schools - the remainder of the school supplies were taken to the Primary School and as a group we are looking for a person to be the liaison for the schools, store the supplies and deliver supplies as needed.
Clothing - The stock is pretty much depleted at the present time ... so come on folks, let's get the reserves restocked ... the need is still out there.
Donation - Shawn Hinricks, who brought a duffle bag full of clothing, shoes, sporting equip., etc. is still waiting word from Customs who will release the bag to Kim Noakes (our contact person).
Samaritans Purse - Lauren offered to lobby on our behalf; thanks Lauren
Daylight Saving Time - starts in Mexico on April 1st .... The United States and Canada changed their clocks last Saturday.
Bus Schedule - ADO will not commit to a regular schedule at this time; the bus leaves for Cancun at 5:30 p.m. and for Chetumal at 6:30 p.m. However, we could not get any confirmed days of travel from them. A second option is a shuttle service operated by the Taxi Company out of Hotel Sorez on Second Street. They run to F. Carillo Puerto every day at 6 a.m. and 2 p.m.; from there you can catch a local bus, i.e. Mayab, which runs about every half-hour north.
Comfort Inn - If you are looking for a lower-priced hotel near the airport, Comfort Inn offers great rooms with breakfast included for 760 pesos and they also have a shuttle service to the airport. They do not have a restaurant, but there is McDonald's, Burger King and Domino's Pizza close by.
