Thanks for all the super supportive comments in my last post! I'm happy to report that my acne is pretty much gone (for now). I had to resist picking at this HUGE scab that formed and did a painful pop-bleed-scab >_< but all in all, Clindamycin seems to have worked very well for me. I'm piecing together a lovely collage of macro shots of the whole process and my overall experience; it's definitely the fastest working acne treatment I've ever used ^^
Anyway, on a more visually appealing note, Julie and I had the chance to check out Coco Bongo, a club/disco/show in downtown Cancun. Even if you don't like to dance, you should definitely check it out because the show was pretty awesome! Acrobats, dancers, and tons of references to pop culture (Batman, Beetle Juice, Michael Jackson)....it was a good time!

|Very beautiful religion-inspired performance.|

There were, of course, a ton of drunk (and smelly) college kids and the floor was just PACKED with people; good luck getting to the bathroom mid-show - you literally have to fight your way through! Also thank god you can get free, cold bottled water at the bar - really essential because it got pretty hot. Even so, the show was great fun and the performers really are talented! It's no high school musical production, it's a professionally choreographed and executed performance :) Also they throw confetti, shoot streamers, and drop balloons a couple times during the show - it's like being in a movie ^_^
One last thing, they actually played the MV of PSY's Gentleman during the intro! I was really surprised because the MV had only been released ~3 days before ago. I also heard SNSD's "Boys" being played at a little souvenir shop near Chichen Itza. Never thought I'd hear kpop in Mexico!
