... daily withdrawal allowed is $145US, which does not go far here. This leaves no option but to change $US to pesos or to flash the credit card!

After breakfast I headed out for a walk along the lake. This time I cut through town and headed around the left hand side, rather than the right where we headed last time. The others have gone on a trip into the national park to ...
