After a quick stop at the store to buy food for the next day, we make our way to the bus station to catch the 5:45pm bus (make this 6:20pm....after all, it is a 2nd class bus!). We were expecting a chicken-bus but our ride had air conditining and TV's playing movies...plus we don't have to pedal. Total luxury!
Day 65 (2/20/11): 0km...PALENQUE RUINS
Up early, we continue our walk to the archeological site. After all, we have the entire day to see the ruins. Our return bus isn't until 5:00pm today. Along the way, we get to see howler monkeys. Once we arrive at the site, hundreds of people are funneling through the gates. Today is Sunday and Mexican residents are getting in for free so we aren't too excited about the crowed...however, around 1 pm, the park empties significantly as tourists try to escape the heat and we get to appreciate it more.
After the ruins, we go visit the Museo del Sitio which was really interesting.
Back to the bus station right on time...we almost missed the bus! and in San Cristobal de las Casas at 10pm.
Today we rest and run errands (laundry, movie, lively market) in San Cristobal de Las Casas...Our legs are well rested. He are getting back on the road tomorrow morning...Guatemala in 2 or 3 days.
