Can’t Argue With This Solid Logic

18 Feb

For those of you who don’t already know, my job is to write, edit and translate web content for a travel agency here in Cancun. I’m proud to say our content is original and well-written.

However, a coworker recently came across our website’s original frontpage text in our archives… from the year 2000. Enjoy!



Cancun is an island.

A very unusual island, with a whimsical silhouette that conforms perfectly to the classical geographic definition or what an island should be: solid land surrounded by water.

This is the case of Cancun, a section of solid land, firmly anchored to the earth’s crust and forever surrounded by salty seas. That’s exactly where all similarities among Cancun and all the other islands of the world end.



So Cancun is, in fact, an island… just in case you didn’t catch that.

    Phew! I am so glad to hear that Cancun is “firmly anchored to the earth’s crust” because for years I have been obsessively checking Google Earth every day to make sure that Cancun was not slowly breaking off and floating out into the ocean.

    That first line is kind of a paradox…unusual and yet exactly what it should be.
