Things I saw in Mexico that I’d never seen before:
– At the hotels, the maids folded the edge of the toilet paper into little fans, as rendered in this blurry image, which I took while tipsy:
– This was my first experience with calling hotels and finding they didn’t accept guests who had kids. I didn’t realize that was a thing.
– Roving candy shops — vendors package up bags of bright penny candies and hang them from a sandwich board, which they wear on their shoulders.
– A waiter swung the tab of my Coke can around so it hovered over the mouth of the can, and then stuck the straw through it and into the can. The top hole of the tab acts as a sort of straw-stabilizer.
-Tutti-frutti flavored marshmallows.
