1975 - 1976 Trip
Notes on 1981-82 Trip to Mexico- by Rev. Dianne Picton
The following "Notes" were written by Dianne Picton when Stephen, David, Owen and Dianne Picton and took a three week vacation to Mexico. We left Omaha, Nebraska right after Christmas and flu to Merida, Mexico. The airfare was $100 per adult round trip and $50 per child round trip. We rented a car and drove to Chicken Itza, Cancun, Playa del Carman, Coba and Tulum. At Chicken Itza we climbed the pyramids and saw the ruins. At Cancun we stayed a few days and swim on the beautiful beaches. Cancun at this time did not have available air service and Cancun had only about three hotels. At Playa del Carman we took a boat to the island of Cozumel where we stayed a few days. To understand the Notes, Dianne while writing this, used Shorthand in a few places, P & J stands for Peanut-butter and Jelly sandwich, the value of money has had a lot of inflation and change with Mexico removing the left three zeroes once or twice since this was written (I think at that time 10 peso equaled 50 cents in our U.S. money), @ for at, R.R. for railroad, and K.C. for Kansas City.
