... As it happens the next day dawned clear & bright, so I was finally able to go to the Salto at Eyipantla, which today had pretty good water flow - the 242 step ascent wasn't too bad, so I must be geting fitter! These are the falls that feature in the Mel Gibson film of the Mexican conquest, (which I still want to see, more for Mel in a loin cloth than Mexican history!), called Apocolypto.
Back in town, headed out to the Balneario (swimming pool), the big attraction being ...
