Albert gets his day

Albert has been waiting a very long time to get his door fixed.  Today, I took him in to the Mercedes Dealership in Cancun.   They finally got the part in from Germany. 

I had to go back and find the blog for the day his door latch broke.  It was November 5th...only 6 days into our journey.   We had made such great time until then.  Here is the blog entry.

    Kinichna, January 29th 2013

The total number of days between Monday, November 5th, 2012 and Wednesday, February 6th, 2013 is 93 days.
This is equal to exactly 3 months and 1 day.

This does not include the end date, so it's accurate if you're measuring your age in days, or the total days between the start and end date. But if you want the duration of an event that includes both the starting date and the ending date, then it would actually be 94 days.

93 days is equal to 13 weeks and 2 days.

The total time span from 2012-11-05 to 2013-02-06 is 2,232 hours.
This is equivalent to 133,920 minutes.

You can also convert 93 days to 8,035,200 seconds.

Today is 2/6/2013 and 11/5/2012 is exactly 93 days before today.

Maddy woke up not feeling well today.   Gerry had a migraine.   Albert's appointment is not until tomorrow morning, but I decided why waste a wasted day?    After dropping Albert off in Cancun I took 2 collectivo's (minivan buses) back to Xpu Ha.   It was the first time I had taken public transportation on this coast and it was surprisingly easy.    The first leg took me to Playa del Carmen for 30 pesos, the second leg took me to Xpu Ha for another 30 pesos.  All told that is less than $5.00 to go 100 kilometers.    It is significantly cheaper to ride the collectivo on the west coast and in central Mexico.  

I met a woman from Barcelona on the second collectivo.   She has never done the Camino de Santiago, but said she knows many who have.  Of all the people she knows, not one of them was sorry they did it, not one said they would never do it again, and most of them want to do it again and again.   I have heard that the Camino gets into your system, and it is very hard to let it go.
