        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.

        I arrived around 9:30AM. Somehow I was thinking I'll get here around 6AM. Of course, it's a 15-hour bus trip. I must have had a good sleep in the bus as it didn't feel like that long.

        Hotel Baluarte. I finally stayed in a real, nice hotel. Feels like being back to civilization. The reception was nice enough to allow me to check-in early …

        ... 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 ...

        ... I had my first Spanish conversation with our taxi driver and I blew it, all the time we spent learning Spanish meant nothing when he asked if i spoke spanish and my mind went blank... I put it down to jet lag and being very tired. Its very hard when you're put on the spot with an actual spanish speaking person, i should have said "Hablo un poco Espanol" which is I speak a little Spanish. We got to our hotel very quickly and in one piece, checked in got our ...

It has created a fabulous atmosphere around the campus. Additionally those students who have been doing some kind of marketing course had to build a stand and sell what they had made. I have included a few photos to give some idea Of how amazing the place looked. I ...
