We had a long day in chichi and one of our party was unwell. The hotel provided an oasis of calm and comfort that really helped the day to go better. We had breakfast and afternoon coffee, both very nice. The hotel is beautifully decorated, and the waiters are in traditional costume, giving the place a nice old-fashioned (in the berst sense of the word) feel. Another unique feature about this hotel is the many parrots and macaws around the dining area. I felt a bit ambiguous about these animals, given the conservation problems these birds face in the wild, but we did really enjoy seeing them and talking to them (there were some real characters).

We arrived at the hotel after 9:00AM and our guide Elmer said we'd leave at 9:30. Elmer's a really nice guy and we enjoyed our time with him, but we were back at the hotel by 10:45! During our short walk, he did walk us through the main street and ...
... Then went back to San Pedro, booked on afternoon as doing Indian nose in morning tomorrow. But they needed 1640q Alex learnt me 600q and said I'd pay other half next day. Then went to try get cash from atm to pay Alex back and get money for school but wouldn't work. Didn't know if no cash or if it was my card. So we took the vertical hike up to the main town where the only other atm was. Massive dog followed us all the way there and back! Again didn't work and Alex's didn't ...
... that I can take on the buses with me instead of having my bag loaded on the roof, exposed to the elements! I have met 3 people so far travelling this lightly and I am immensely jealous! Although I can say I have actually used everything I've brought with me at least once, I definitely think I can do the same trip with half of the things and still be comfortable! When Play is like Work Although I'm having a lot of fun exploring the world, I have to say I've ...
... is in a large vortex, due to all the spirituality and Mayan sites in the area. For some people, the energy there is too strong. But I felt the energetic pull of this place.
Shortly after I came down sick, nature began communicating with me. For 2 solid weeks I had 2 birds, one in the front of the house and the other at the back, flying into or tapping the glass windows. I felt the urgency to get out of the house, to meet the people that I would soon be ...
