Edzná.

OR ANOTHER GOOD THING CAME OUT OF CAMPECHE.

Although I had had a great time in the museums with the magnificent jade masks the day before, I had also had a drama at the bank after, and a miserable, bad dinner in the evening. I had drank the last of my six pack in my fluorescently lit room and felt glum and anxious about the following day. I was to be pleasantly surprised however.

An hour up the road with the collectivo is Edzna. Without Lariza at my hotel, I wouldn’t have known anything. She was excellent for the proper local information and knew exactly where to get what, and what was open. The other shitheads were full of false info. Despite the hotel being eccentric, she was my rock.

COBA mexico and name that tree!

OR MY FABULOUS JOURNEY TO COBA JUST AN HOUR AND A HALF FROM TULUM.

Ball court with ring clearly still intact.

Well what a surprise. Just an hour an a half up the road is Coba and a site that takes your breath away. As usual I had a total fiasco going there but I’ll get to that later. Coba is a jewel and as always it’s best to get there relatively early. I saw about fifty people around this very stretched out monumental site until I was leaving and then coach loads were coming in.

BOATS, SEA, SAND AND WET THINGS.

OR THIS IS ON MY MAIN SITE WHICH NAUGHTY OLD BIRDS ARE NOT READING. BAD BAD BIRDIES. I’VE ADDED SOME BITS, BUT THIS IS THE GENERAL IDEA FOR THOSE HOT WET TRIPS!!

Riding up to volcano in the midday sun.

Alert: In preparation for us escaping and flying free again.

The wet bits section…..

Nature reserve near Kuching at the end of the hike. No people swimming as a crocodile had been seen there that morning

Down and dirty at the beach. Swimming, snorkelling, diving, boogie boarding or just plain sunbathing? Onboard a boat for some fishing as well? Climbing and trekking around the coastline? Gazing out to sea? Breath in that air and get ready for your wet bits!
