You have seen the sunrise and the sunset from this same balcony, now see the storm that whipped this area for an hour or so.
The day started with dark clouds. The previous day was sunny but was a tad cool, infact I even turned off the airconditioning because the room was getting way too cold. I've never experienced Cancun this cool before.
The wind got stronger and the rain started coming down hard and because of the strong wind the rain was coming down sideways.
We were getting ready to go out before the downpour. When I saw this, I thought the whole day was a lost cause.
Well, it's just another typical day in a tropical paradise because by noon time, the rain had passed, the sky cleared and by the time we got back from our day out in the city the beach scene showed no sign of the earlier turmoil.
