The Tale Of
The Newsboy

Once upon a time there was a little newsboy who was very, very poor and he only sold old newspapers because he didn't have enough money for new ones.

People didn't by his newspapers because they were all so out of date, and they wanted new newspapers.

So the little newsboy never sold any, and every day he accumulated more and more old newspapers.

What the little newsboy did was put up a paper recycling plant, and he became a millionaire, bought out all the newspaper businesses and the news agencies, prohibited publishing current news, and thus obliged people to read only news of the past.

In the papers on sale today, for example, you'd read that the Zapatistas are about to arrive in Mexico City and that they'll meet with the Villistas there.

You can't quite make out the date, but it seems to either 1914 or 1997.

 

 

Buckle Up!

Mexico now has
a seat-belt law.

CANCUN ATTRACTIONS

Many people think of Cancun solely as a tropical beach paradise. However, Cancun teems with places to go, things to do - and in such vast variety that nobody's passion is denied.

Cancun has so much to offer a vacationer that it can be hard to narrow down the choices! Read on to learn about some of the favorite Cancun experiences - top theme parks, aquatic activities, museums and Mayan ruins!

To see exciting "Mayan" attractions you need to travel a bit further south to Xcaret or Tulum where dancers perform and the traditional Mayan ballcourt game is presented.

There are Mayan ruins up that way as well or you can head into the interior and visit the great Chichen Itza or Uxmal.

    Cancun is a world-class tourist resort destination and a thriving community of 450,000 full-time residents who lead normal, often very traditional lives.

    The greatest asset Cancun has is its natural marine playground which sparkles with a warm sun more than 200 days of the year.

    Cancun beaches are 14 miles of white-talc sand.

    Don't forget that sunlight in the Yucatan is more direct than most are accustomed to. Limit you initial exposure then increase exposure as your vacation progresses.

    Cancun resorts have long been a honeymoon destination but have now become a very hot place for weddings.

    In Cancun partying takes precedence over just about everything.

    There are more than 350 restaurants.

    Cancun hotels are excellent, ranging from four and five star to Grand Tourism.
