    ... the gilded altars and 3D reliefs. This church has been the domain of the Dominican monks who have made it their interest to help the local indigenous people who have not fared particularly well with colonisation. It was interesting just to wander the cobbled streets admiring the architecture with no real need to be at any specific place. We wandered further south from Mercardo Benito Juarez to visit the Mercardo de Artesanias. This is a market ...

    ... to coffee shops and rinsed free wifi – actually being productive and getting on with my TEFL course though. After that, I splashed the cash a little bit and got some AMAZING Chicken in Chocolate Mole Sauce… See, despite all my moaning, it’s really not that hard to keep me happy – Less straw hats, more blow your head off coffee and food covered in chocolate.

    A travel blog entry by jayandbob on Aug 05, 2013

    We had to be up and in the foyer of the hotel ready to go by 9.40am, to start the tour by 10. We woke up feeling ****, we had both gotten sick with some stomach bugs that also left you feeling tired with aches in the joints and muscles.
