SPWN Update and off to Cancun

I was hoping to get all the cross stitching done on part 5 before posting a pic, but didn't quite make it. I still have a little bit of regular stitching to do and then a TON of backstitching and then to add the beads.
Apparently these are apartment houses, not regular houses. I actually thought they were mansions!! It looks like a lot of people stopped stitching this piece during this part. Hopefully this was the largest part in the pattern.

This Friday we leave for Cancun to celebrate our anniversary, a tad bid early, but who wants to go to Cancun when it's warm here?
