    Dont be fooled by the music

    by Umfufu Updated Oct 22, 2003
    Singer in the restaurant Jaguar

    We were having a meal in restaurant Jaguar when some musicians came to join us with some Mexican music while we were eating.
    That was fun,.. and because of that i payed him $ 5. (dont go to high in your prize cause they may think you are very ridge !)

    Unique Suggestions: What happend was that these men (there were 4 of them) asked $ 5 from Frans, Leny and Peter so they had $ 5 each !

    Fun Alternatives: Make a prize for the singing before they start to do so, or dont give them anything at all.
    They dont make it funny anymore themselves, cause i dont think its a good idear to ask more money if you already got some.

    Dont buy them

    Birds in a cage in Playa

    We came into a garden when we walked off the 5th boulevard and saw a lot of birds in cages. We were not so sure about it, cause you could buy them. Well its not a good thing to buy a bird when you are on holiday, cause how on earth are you going to bring them home?

    Fun Alternatives: Buy a wooden one...there are lots of shops who sell wood-craft !!

    Hard sellers

    by Umfufu Updated Oct 13, 2003
    WELCOME in my shop

    You have to prepare yourself for the sellers on the streets, they will almost pull you into their stores. Yeah, a kind of friendly but with every step you make there is an other seller who sells (wanna sell) you silver.

    Unique Suggestions: Smile to the seller who wants to get you into his shop and make sure you dont get angry with him / her. The are (a kind of poor) and wanna sell their stuff, but its not so nice for us tourists.

    Fun Alternatives: Walk with a lot of plastic bags and just say you have bought everything you want !

    Power????

    Powernet in Playa del Carmen

    If you have something that needs to be sharged every day you need a plug to do that. And power of course....well.....if you see the picture you know why the power cuts off sometimes.

    Unique Suggestions: Most of the Mexican people just make a whire from the electricnet to their house to keep the bills low. So if they have a fridge.....they need a whire...if they have a tellie...they need a whire...

    Fun Alternatives: If you really need a full battery (for your camera, for your gameboy, or your shaver) you better make sure you have batteries with you or, for shaving, bring a nice shaveknife aswell.....better with then without !
