Magic Hostel

Before we left Palenque we took the wise more of purchasing some travel sickness pills, good move as the journey again was up steep windy roads into the mountains. The blue pills knocked us out and sorted the stomach. I wish this website also had an altitude profile as over the last couple of weeks Ive gone up and down, at least I know now that I dont get altitude sickness.

We arrived late in San Cristobel, checked the email and went to meet James in a hostel. Unfortunatley that hostel was full therefore I left the bags there and went on a mission eventually finding Magic Hostel.

The following morning we were thinking of moving hostel but im glad we stayed as we have had lots of fun and meet a brand new group of friends. Tomorrow 12 of us are getting a minibus across the Guatmalan border to Lago Atitlan and last night we went to a salsa club in the city centre.

My first full day in San Cristobel I spent sorting out things, washing, post etc and later in the after I climbed up to Cerro de Guadalope for views over the city and visited some of the other spanish colonial buildings here. On the way back I went to a crazy market and brough a fresh dinner of a varity of fresh veggies and meat for less then a pound, bargain.
