Catching Up

It’s low-content week here at Canadian Entrepreneur, as I try to get some work done after spending last week with the family in Cancun.

Cancun was the freebie trip I won last January by scoring the most points on Test the Nation, the CBC’s occasional trivia quiz TV show. It was our first trip to Mexico, and while the weather wasn't the best (high of just 78F most days, and a lot of wind) the hotel and food were great, the Maya ruins magnificent, and the salsa and sailing exhilarating.

Enjoy the pics.
