          The hostel was very nice, with staff that were very attentive, polite, and helpful. It was also beautifully maintained, airy, and had a nice pool as an added bonus.

          Phew! Busy day of transportation. After waking up at 3:30 to catch our 4am ride to the airport (thanks DM!), we got to EWR in plenty of time. We were in good spirits as the check-in and security process were smooth and quick and our 6:36am flight boarded right on time...and then skidded to a dead halt. Apparently a flight to Dallas got cancelled …

          Definitely getting comfortable in the Mexican life.................lazy mornings with tea/coffee and light breakfast, David goes for his walk along the beach, Ellen and I do our big 10 minute low impact for bad knees aerobics and Chris sometimes goes for a walk, laughs at us or reads on the deck. Then we decide whether it's a pool or beach day, which can sometimes take awhile to discuss and decide. Once decided we suit up, pack what we need ...

          Today we rode a bus for 9 hours, from Palenque to Merida. It was a spectacularly uneventful day, with the most exciting parts being the salsa dancing shuttle driver who drove us to the bus station at 7am, and the military checkpoints where they spot-checked "random" (aka racially profiled) people for ID and searched our bags. Other than that, it was a pretty boring ride, and I mostly watched the scenery change from jungle ...

          ... pieces. At Chichén Itzá we collected our bags from the bus and went inside and checked them into a luggage storage room. Got our entrance tickets then went inside. We met our tour guide Guiermo who took us on a 2 hour tour. One of the most impressive Mayan sites, Chichén Itzá contains both Toltec and Mayan ruins lying alongside each other. In its heyday as a commercial, religious, and military centre, which lasted until about the 13th ...

          ... talk at least to foreigners about it, as they donīt have a problem with it. One of them was a guatemalan guy called Dieter.

          One day we had the opportunity to watch some local dance groups perform on a city square not far from our hostel and that was a fun experince too. Overall Merida was a great place and better than expected.

          After six days it was time to move on and explore the rest of the Yucatan ...
