Nice sunset view as we pass over London, England, on our way to Albania.
Where are Kevin and Ruth now? Hiking in Albania, Kosovo, and Montenegro.

Where are Kevin and Ruth going next? Porto, Portugal on June 25th!

San Cristobal (day 2)

Saturday January 31…8:30pm

We relaxed this morning while Bill tried to sort out their lack of internet. We’re parked side by side, and I can get on the internet just fine, while neither of their laptops will connect properly.

San Cristobal

Friday January 30…11:00pm

As we figured, we had absolutely no problems last night. When we woke up, Max the dog was lying with one eye open on the vestibule of Keenan and Jeff’s tent in between our motorhome and Bill and Bonnie's truck camper. Max did a good job protecting us!

Agua Azul waterfalls

Thursday January 29…10:45pm

We left the Maya Bell campground at just after 10am. We stopped at the Pemex gas station to try to check the internet, but couldn’t get on a network.

Maya Bell Campground (day 4)

Wednesday January 28…10:30pm

We walked back up to the museum that is part of the Palenque National Park. We didn’t know if you have to pay, and as we entered, the person at the desk was looking after a tour group that had just come in.

Palenque Ruins

Tuesday January 27…11:00pm

We left the campground at about 8am, and walked up to the Palenque ruins entrance.

Monday, January 26, 2009

Maya Bell Campground (day 2)

Monday January 26…11:00pm

Because we are in the jungle, there are howler monkeys here. We haven’t seen them yet, but you can sure hear them. I was awake early because I had heard almost what sounds like a lion roaring.

Maya Bell Campground Near Palenque

Sunday January 25…10:30pm

Had a good sleep, although there was a little bit of truck traffic through the night.

Saturday, January 24, 2009


Saturday January 24…10:45pm

We were up at 7am, and ready to go by 9am. The big Chedraui store in Chetumal was on our way out of town, so we stopped to do groceries.

Friday, January 23, 2009

Calderitas (day 13)

Friday January 23…9:00pm

Today was sunny with cloudy periods and a high of about 24C (75F), although it did get a little windy this afternoon.

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Calderitas (day 12)

Thursday January 22…8:30pm

We got up at 6am. The weather forecast must have been pretty close, because it was 14C (60F) inside the motorhome when we got up. It did end up a nice sunny day, but only a high of about 22C (71F).

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Calderitas (day 11)

Wednesday January 21…10:00pm

A little cooler today…high about 24C (75F) and sunny with cloudy periods. I had checked the weather forecast, and it’s supposed to get down to about 12C (55F) overnight.

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Calderitas (day 10)

Tuesday January 20…9:45pm

Another beautiful day. Sunny, the odd cloudy period, and about 26C (78F).

Monday, January 19, 2009

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Calderitas (day 8)

Sunday January 18…10:00pm

It was a beautiful day today…sunny with the odd cloud and about 26C (78F). And because of all that solar energy, our batteries were pretty much recharged by noon.

Saturday, January 17, 2009

Calderitas (day 7)

Saturday January 17…10:00pm

The morning started off cloudy, but by noon it had pretty much cleared up. It’s supposed to be warm and sunny the next several days.

Friday, January 16, 2009

Calderitas (day 6)

Friday January 16…10:00pm

Another overcast day. It didn’t rain at all, but we didn’t see the sun at all either.

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Calderitas (day 5)

Thursday January 15…10:30pm

It rained on and off throughout the night. When we got up it was raining, and it rained all morning.

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Calderitas (day 4)

Wednesday January 14…10:30pm

Our taxi showed up here for 9:15am, as we had arranged. He took us about 10 km’s to the dentist office, and the fare was 70 pesos ($6.37 CAN, $5.15 US).

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Calderitas (day 3)

Tuesday January 13…10:30pm

It had rained some more overnight, and by the time we got up in the morning it was raining pretty steady.

Monday, January 12, 2009

Calderitas (day 2)

Monday January 12…10:30pm

We did have a great sleep last night! Didn’t hear a thing.

Sunday, January 11, 2009


Sunday January 11…9:30pm

We were packed up and ready to go by 8am. We were a little concerned about paying our bill.

Saturday, January 10, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 8)

Saturday January 10…10:15pm

This morning, we walked north up the beach, towards a point where there is another resort which has been abandoned due to hurricane damage in 2005.

Friday, January 9, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 7)

Friday January 9…10:30pm

Not much of interest today. This morning, Ruth and Whiskey went to their spot on the beach, while I had some internet time.

Thursday, January 8, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 6)

Thursday January 8…10:15pm

Ruth, Whiskey, and I went to the beach this morning. Ruth likes a little spot down where the abandoned resort is. They still have palapas on the beach for shade, and Whiskey likes to dig herself a cool spot in the sand and go to sleep.

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 5)

Wednesday January 7…9:30pm

Ruth went into Playa Del Carmen with Ernie and Stephanie, a couple who summer in Barrie, Ontario and who are staying here at Xpu-Ha beach for most of this winter.

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 4)

Tuesday January 6…10:15pm

I know, more of the same…but this place kind of grows on you. Besides, nobody ever comes to collect the rent! I’m sure we’ll end up paying it all, but still, it’s kind of strange.

Monday, January 5, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 3)

Monday January 5…8:00pm

Another beach bum kind of a day. Sunny, cloudy periods, temperature about 30C (86F). Pretty much perfect.

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach (day 2)

Sunday January 4…9:45pm

We didn’t do much today. Sat on the beach this morning and then walked a bit. Ruth made a stew and we had S&G and Dean and Pinar over for lunch and Pinar brought some kind of Turkish cabbage dish and a salad to go with the stew.

Saturday, January 3, 2009

Xpu-Ha Beach

Saturday January 3…10:00pm

Another great sleep in the jungle! We were ready to go by 7:15am or so because we wanted to get past the unbelievable traffic that is now at Playa Del Carmen and beyond, plus we wanted to get to the beach campground before anybody else showed up because we knew that when we left yesterday there were only two spots left.

Friday, January 2, 2009

Sacbe (day 2)

Friday January 2…9:30pm

We had a great sleep last night. We got up at about 7:30am, and we could hear that Lynn already had neighbours visiting for coffee.

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Happy New Year from Sacbe

Thursday January 1…9:30pm

Happy New Year!

Whiskey let us sleep in for a bit, and we didn’t get up until 7:45.
