Today we woke up and had a tour organised to go to monte Alban. I felt so sick. Sore throat and glands and period pain :( We got ready and I went to get a muffin for breakfast.

I waited for the part where it was just people, all who seemed to have a little cup of what could only be Mezcal, and blended in. That was a joke since I can not blend in anywhere. Kind of like being the black guy in Paonia. But they were amiable and had no problem with me getting to the other side. While there I saw a muneca, only a few ...
