We booked our return bus tickets this morning. Decided to go on the first class Ado bus which cost us $380 pesos or $38 usd versus the $29 we spent on the way here. Not a big price difference – will see how much faster it is (turned out to be 1/2 h faster). I am glad we prearranged/payed the flight home and transfer service.
Just had breakfast at 100% natural – we both had the popeye omelette’s with spinach and melted cheese – yum. Paul has gone to star bucks to get me a frape what a sweetheart. Time to go back and switch hotel rooms, we had originally booked a room with 1 bed with the online deal – they told us to stay put for the first day and move to a new room the second day. After we sort that out, we will head over to meet Michele Rob and their kids at their house – from there we will call Carol and Rick and then head off to go to a Cenote.
Pronounced [se?no?te] which is a type of sinkhole containing groundwater typically found in the Yucatán Peninsula and some nearby Caribbean islands. The term is derived from a word used by the low-land Maya to refer to any location where groundwater is accessible.
Funny my computer knows I am not in San Pedro anymore as I am getting spanish directions showing up for log ins and such. Michele says the internet here an be just as frustrating as it is in San Pedro and sometimes it takes a long time for her to post pictures to her blog – made me think we do not have it so bad after all.
5:41 pm Cenote Azul was amazing – the water was so clear and there were lot’s of fish to look at. We also got to see some very acrobatic people do some amazing things like go right into hand stands, hang off trees and watch people cliff diving, including Paul, Birdie and Rick – I have some great pictures to post when we get back to San Pedro.
Right now I am sitting on 14th street just down the road from our hotel (managed to tap into an unsecured connection.) We are all taking a couple of hours down time then will meet up for dinner later – going to eat at La Parilla and probably stroll on 5h ave a bit.
