Day we got up at 7 and got ready for the day. We had breakfast at the jade cafe across the road and then walked to the shops to get money out. We went to the Palenque Mayan ruins and it was incredible. So much better than Chichen Itza in my opinion. The weather was better for exploring as well. We learnt so much about what each part of the Ruin was used for and saw recreations etc. ash and I bought heaps of souvenirs and laughed the whole time while ...

It was also pretty useful as a defence, but the mayans were more into controlling people using religion and fear than war.
There was a really cute little courtyard on top of the palace and the view from up there ...
... over on the price of the hotel (which was already the top of our budget) by booking.com and had to pay a load of tax that they'd failed to mention before. Luckily all money here is Monopoly money so it didn't matter too much, but it still annoyed me. The hotel is pretty sweet though, so not the end of the world.
We wandered around for a bit and then grabbed some dinner at a little place down the road from the hotel. It ws really ...
