    Bare bones, bathroom down the hall, excellent Wi-Fi service and unbeatable ambience since it the historic old YMCA building, my home as a young sailor in 1954.

    The airport in Mexico City was a much easier experience than we were anticipating. We were flying with Volaris, a budget airline, and were expecting Ryanair kind of treatment. In reality, it was fine. When we'd arrived in Mexico and paid our entrance fee of 332 pesos, we were handed a list of other charges, equating to about 30 each. This list …

    The bus ride was longer than planned, arriving in San Diego around 8pm with an hour ahead of us to reach the Baird's house via public transport. However, San Diego was a sight for sore eyes; much improved from the dirty streets of LA. We made our way from bus to train and back to bus, and eventually arrived at the house to a warm welcome from Kerry and Connor. It had been years since I'd seen them but it felt like family ...

    ... and the female eating fruit and another young male who spent the entire time sitting with his back up against the glass as if he was avoiding the cameras. It was a hectic and rushed time at the zoo and we spent a total of 9 hours on the bus. So you can understand why we were disappointed with the amount of time that we were allocated at the zoo. The traffic was also particularly rough as the Chargers were playing in San Diego, this meant a very slow exit form San Diego. Until ...
