Stayed here in the hotel near where pauls wedding will be, nice but the houses close to Lore´s parents Sten and Clara are a bit more reasonable. Toured Cuernavaca, nice town awefull traffic! There are two main squares and 2-3 clusters of interesting building, but feck all else. The place where we were was lovely, big golf course and nice pool in both places, not too hot high 20´s. Me n paul went to see the ruins just south of cuernavaca, Xochicalco , they are fantastic, the views are breath taking and the seem to be uncovering more and more all the time, although they are out of cash at the mo. the best thing about the place is that you can explore it in our own way with no crowds, people hassling you or any set route, the caves at the back are a must see, they´re dark and have one hole in the roof so they could tell the time!! The ruins are at the intersection of 5 valleys! after that we got a mellon in a nearish town, down a road that belonged in cavan! was interesting to see the farming peolpe out working the feilds still using a house drawn plough, and the town was very mexican, i guess it was good to see the other side of mexico outside the bustle of the cities, even just for a bit.
