A nice comfortingly familiar choice, close to the town centre and opposite the museum of Mayan life. The kids enjoyed the pool, gown ups enjoyed sitting outside in the little courtyard. After several months of roughing it we enjoyed the feeling of a little luxury (maybe more a reflexion on our travels than holiday inn)

We are the only people to get off the bus at the border town of Chetumal at 3am. The bus station is empty apart a few drunks passed out, it all feels a bit dodgy. Thankfully there are taxis waiting outside; we jump in. Chetumal borders Belize to the south and doesn't have much going for it. We had heard about an incredible soft water lagoon just outside town so we head out the next day to check it ...
... adults. I think we had more leg room on the airplane. The bus made a lot of stops, picking up people (mostly students on their way to school) and dropping people off. After about an hour, we finally arrived in Orange Walk. We were supposed to be met at the bus terminal by Antonio, the owner of the tour company, but he wasn't there so we got a taxi to take us to his office. He wasn't there either but did arrive about five minutes later. A young lady from Germany and a party ...
... Xaibe. We unload all the chairs from the truck and I wait with the boys until someone with the key turns up. Katie heads off a couple of villages further to collect a couple we're studying with. The meeting is from 10:00 till 11:45. We pack up straight away and take our studies back. We get back home for about 13:00. We have 1.5 hours for having lunch and then at 14:30 we're off out again to the ministry arrangement. Usually we're doing return visits and studies in Xaibe. We get back ...
... seem to really know what they are doing with them.
By the time we were on our way back the ferry was operating again so we didn't have to take the really long way round. You have to have a lot of faith with this ferry as it really doesn't look very safe. We managed to get back safely though. It was a very interesting day out with the Mennonites.
Thanks to Andrew for the photos as I had forgotten my camera!
Time to leave Playa del Carmen. Andrew had ordered 2 taxis to pick us up for 10AM. We gave in our keys and waited for them to arrive. Only one came, but it was a big one. I doubted we would get everything in, but the driver managed to. These guys really know how to pack a vehicle! The ADO bus station was only 10 mins away so it was a very short journey. Aaron and Jacob were sitting in the front with the driver and they noticed a familiar magazine on ...
