So today we made plans to go to a movie at the Cineapolis VIP (VIP Cinemas) with Alana and her boyfriend Isaac later that night. There was a 740 and 1020 showtime and by mid afternoon we still hadn't heard back from Alana to make sure they were coming so we headed over to the mall to do some "snooping". For those not in the know, snooping is used here to refer to the act of going through a mall, perhaps looking at potential purchase opportunities but not intending to actually buy anything. For the most part we accomplished this goal.

We arrived and were hungry, but first Kaitlyn had to find a bathroom. I'm starting to wonder how she functions on a daily basis with having to make stops every hour... but anyway we found one and then began looking for a food court. On our way we passed a large open area with what looked like a set for a talk show put together. It didn't look like anything was happening anytime soon so we kept on going. The promise of sustenance our motivation.

After a while we came to an arcade. Since we still had some time to kill we decided to check it out. As it happened the tokens were 2 for 1 that day, so we bought 200 pesos worth of tokens (for 100 pesos) and started playing. There were some really enjoyable games there, as well as some real disappointments, but the best was definitely the miniature bowling. While we were there Alana called Kaitlyn and let her know they could make the 1020 show so we headed up to the cinema to grab the tickets. Another cool aspect of the theater was that you were able to purchase specific seats within it. We chose 4 seats near the center and were on our merry way. It was about 730 by this time so we still had some time to kill. We found a starbucks and decided to get some caffeine in our system. I'm not sure what it is about malls, but after walking around in one for a few hours it seems to have a lullaby effect on me. I'm not especially tired but I feel the overwhelming urge to lay down and sleep. Caffeinated drinks in tow, we happened upon a sponsored television showing synchronized diving from the games! We sat down, sipped our drinks and enjoyed some very talented divers perform some pretty crazy aerial feats.
Anyway the movie concluded and we retired back to the house for a nice long sleep. We're planning to head to Ixtapa on the 31st after the closing ceremonies on the 30th so I'll keep you posted on that.
