Hi KT! What a blast! The road trip went amazing, unfortunately the tamales were never quite as good as the ones we had...but Chiapas was great for ruins, but also took very ill for 3 days and then sick for the rest of the trip :-( also we had to bribe the local "communists" on the road to Yaxchilan who had set up a blockade of spikes in the road, then Jane committed an "infracciones" in Campeche and had to bribe the cop (100 pesos not too bad I thought). Calakmul was outstanding, then the beach was fun, not crowded at all, and then Valladolid and Chitzen Itza etc which was very interesting too. It was such an adventure...but really we wanted several more weeks. We will definitely be back!!
Thanks Claire! I'm trying to leave feedback on your profile but it's not letting me. I will keep trying. Anyway thank you for all your help and your lovely apartment which we really liked! The cell phone was very thoughtful and your driver took us to Teotihuacan and was polite and very well priced! A wonderful experience! Thank you again.
