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!

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.

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.
