... steps are very steep to walk up and they think that was so you always approached the gods in a manner of supplication. They also had a great plaza in the palace with a pit which allowed the king to intimidate the captured warriors. All very clever stuff. A great way to spend 2 or so hours. Into the van for the drive to Campeche. We stopped for lunch today at a great place which specialized in steak. ...
... flight only took 20 minutes and wasn’t too turbulent. The tiny airport at Corozal appeared to be deserted except for two taxi drivers who were both vying for our business. We needed to get to Corozal bus station to catch a bus across the border to the Mexican town of Chetumal. Border crossing days tend to be somewhat stressful and we weren’t looking forward to this one. We were expecting it to be busy at the border and there were entry and exit fees ...
... Only 2 hours had passed.
With second thoughts clouding our minds, we set off to explore the town and check out a few alternatives. They were either poorly ventilated, totally dead or absurdly overpriced. Plus we'd already seen most of the town - the churches, the plazas, the market, the grey sea. It was a nice enough town but in comparison to Zacatecas and Guanajuato, it was rather lacklustre.
... had the intimate feeling that we were after. We had gone to the trouble the day before of seeking out the restaurant and walking in personally making a booking for 1.30 for lunch. So it was a bit annoying when we turned up at Babel to find it locked and barred and no sign of life. No matter we said, they'll be here soon. So we waited, despite our hunger. At 1.50 we asked some people nearby if they were also waiting for the restaurant to open. They had no idea what we were saying ...
... locals stay in, or they could be working,
but in the evening you see kids,couples, families, grandparents,
young adults out visiting at the centro, playing at the playgrounds,
walking the seawall, or playing a little pickup basketball. The city
comes to life, and it feels alive, fun and safe.
On our way back to the club this
evening we hit our first tope, at full speed (40km/hr). Topes are
speed bumps, and they work great, we should have more of them ...
