Tropical heat and cool drinks

sunny 32 °C

We arrived well in Palenque this morning, but the bus ride was quite rough, as we both suffer from leaky arses, caused by a restaurant in Mexico City. I had it twice already while we were there, and both times we had eaten in this place the night before. Al has only ever had belly issues once before, in Calcutta, which says a lot about the poison they must be serving up in there - so to anyone coming to Mexico City: don't eat in Cafe La Blanca (should be called Cafe The Leaky Arse).

Anyway, Palenque is quite pleasant. Its a lot hotter than Mexico City, and a lot more humid, but luckily there are lots of cheap cafes serving up cool drinks under spinning fans. We have spotted our first pair of parrots already, and a number of strange bugs - ah, the jungle life :) We just hope to be able to keep the creepy-crawlies out of our bed at night.

We have now uploaded the last set of pictures from Mexico City, including the ruins a Teotihuacan to Flickr, so have a look. Hopefully tomorrow we can upload some good shots of the ruins here in Palenque, including the two of us in Dora the Explorer gear ;)
