So the monkey gets up at the crack of dawn today to capture some shots of the sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico from his hotel balcony in Cancun. Tropical sunrises are always a favorite pastime and he wasn’t disappointed this morning even though Mrs. Kongo did make some protesting noises when Kongo started rooting around for his tripod at 5:30 A.M. Actually sunrises look pretty much exactly like sunsets except, in Kongo’s opinion, the light is a bit softer and there are a lot fewer people out and about.
After catching this image, the monkey roamed around (pretty much alone except for some other very early risers) to catch some shots of the pool complex and beach.
The little monkey is unwinding after a couple of months of hectic work but he’s not just laying by the pool all day. He’s got trips planned to Chichen Itza, a day of swimming with the dolphins, golf, a spa day, a trip to see some centotes, a tequila factory, and something else that he can’t recall at the moment since this resort is all-inclusive and that includes the drinks at the bar. Kongo is at the Moon Palace Resort and he’s been here several times before but it’s a great place so he keeps coming back.
Oh yeah, tonight is the romantic dinner on the beach where Kongo gets surf and turf to help celebrate Mrs. Kongo’s birthday!
Travel safe. Have fun. Hasta luego.
