    ... and back the same way and 10-kicks square path. All done pretty quickly as well, hooorayyy. Same story, we had to wait a while again in the boat afterwards...

    We got back at around 5.30pm and Elina, Dimi and David were absolutely knackered - they hadn't eaten or had a break since 8.30am! No wonder!

    ... apologized for my rude message the night before. He didn't really say anything, and so I walked away as someone came up to him. I needed to pay for my picture, and finally decided that all of the tip-toeing around was doing neither of us any good. Once again I went up to him and asked outright if we were good.

    He said yes, we were fine and then under his breath said that he didn't have to explain himself to me. I was startled and thought maybe I had ...

    ... on the ride. Then, we boarded a bus for Tulum. I think that was a 45 minute ride. Lily is our tour guide who spoke nonstop about the history of Tulum. We stopped at a store on the way, and my sisters and I did buy various things.
