no pains this morning....just a type of flu..a big runny nose and aches everywhere....it was an early rise as we were set to depart for palenque that morning on the bus..... aussie Terry was joining us.

got the 11am bus from san cristobal to palenque-feeling like crap-it didnt seem like the best idea but we did it. the windy roads and mental bus driving made the journey take 6 hours...with a stop off for half an hour....apparently the bus driver was hungry and wanted a break.... as ya do!haha...

the journey was a bit sad...passing all the shanty towns and poor ppl on the way...makes ya appreciate what ya have though. wasnt feeling the best due to the 360 degree bends at top speed...but we got there safely!haha....

arrived in the evening in el panchan (the jungle) where we were recommended to stay. the first place that we opted for ....not knowing what we were getting ourselves in for... was a little cabin that smelt badly of urine...so we quickly scanned through loneyly planet and looked for a better option. got a hotel like hostel at a reasonable price so that was where we were to stay for our 2 night stay in palenque...lot happier now!

just went for a meal that evening with terry and another italian girl which we picked up along the way...there were low spirits at first where food was just on the mind but that soon changed when we were entertained by a band, fire jugglers and a general fire show. it finished off a stressful day well....
