    Hotel Baluarte is just a few blocks away from the sea and the zocalo, both within few minutes walking distance. Gran Cafe de la Parroquia, an institution in Veracruz, is also nearby. The pool is quite small, but it's good enough to take a dip in to cool off from the scorching heat of Veracruz. Very neat and tidy hotel. The receptionists don't speak English and they really couldn't help much in suggestingw hat places to see -- but I realised, it's the same elsewhere even in 4/5-star hotels in the city.

    ... went to get some nice food from a large mall, near the Puebla eye (a massive waste of money seeing as they built the eye in a place you cant actually see anything other than ****** streets from – therefore the eye never actually got used!) then went to the cinema to watch THE worlds crappest film.

    Ashamedly, and totally against normality, I’ve probably only watched about 5 films in the whole of 2013 (thank Breaking Bad, Dexter and Homeland for that!), but went to go ...

    Tacos, Tequila and CORONA

    ... drink in our hands. We helped the locals drink the Corona supplies dry, and learnt that one shot of Tequila means that everyone keeps drinking until the bottle is finished. We also ate the most amazing food, including fresh fish, ceviche, tacos and quesadillas.

    We're just under halfway through the Mexican chapter of our adventure, and are writing from the Guadalajara bus station where we're patiently waiting for our 1.45am bus to ...

    ... because of everyone being away for the holidays. Anyway, I'm a little freaked and I'm driving a standard. Also the roads don't make sense, everything is in circles and if you miss your exit you have to keep going forever to find a way back. Some areas are ok but others are sooo scary full of trucks and taxis and buses all cramming down the road with no regard to any road lanes while funneling into a one lane bridge.
    So, that being ...

    ... in just over an hour. It is a bird observatory, but not what I had in mind, meaning hidden in some secluded forest or overlooking a wide expanse of water. Instead it was located right beside a soccer field with a game in full swing, complete with spectators downing Corona's, concession stands and loud music. It turned out that the observatory was more for raptors for whom thermals and air currents are more important than silence and seclusion.

    ... added it still has a slightly sweet taste. But at least I can drink it with no ill effects. For some reason if I drink too much of the regular milk here it upsets my stomach. I also found that it was a mistake to buy flavoured yogurts since they too are full of extra sugar! I guess I will have to settle for the natural yogurt even though it is a bit runny. They don’t seem to stock the Greek style yogurts. Well anyway it means I can have ...
