Tropical fish catching In the fabulous month in June my grandparents had a great idea to go to Cancun for two weeks. And as days past it was time to pack up and wait to go to O’Hare airport. Then three hours or so pass I’m tired I’m really hot from the blazing sun of Cancun I don’t want to get of the plan but I could sleep in the condo my grandpa has.

So after a tiring day of trying to catch the…
