To tell you the truth, I've traveled with him over the years so many times since Los Vagabundos was formed that I could not even tell you how many times I've done so, but, each has been an adventure of pleasure.
We finally arrived at our hotel some time around 7:30PM or thereabouts. It had been a long day. I forgot to even take a photo of Villahermosa, which we only saw on the outskirts. At least now I can say that I have been to the State of Tabasco, or better still that I spent the night in Tabasco. We departed at 8AM
the next morning for Palenque. 8AM!
have ever traveled with. His degree from Berkley in Anthropology and his life in Chiapas, where he was
born, gives him a unique mixture of two cultures that blend well. Patricio traveled with us from Palenque to Chiapa de Corzo. A great addition. If you are ever traveling anywhere in Chiapas and want an amazing guide ask me for Patricio's contact information.
This croton was about two stories high!
that this great wonder was here.
there, just in case. And, at the top most step, which was very high, it was a good thing David was there as
he had to help the man up that last step. THAT is the kind of man he is......always watching and helping. A real gem! I called to him and he turned around, did this, and I got this GREAT photo.....
Then I decided, with another participant to catch a combi van back to the village of Palenque. When climbing into the van, there was only one person but by the time we stopped and picked up others, there were a total of 17! of us in the van. What fun. We were the only gringoes. We exited near our hotel after paying twenty pesos each and walked the rest of the way to our hotel.
That evening we all relaxed out on the patio of our hotel for drinks and snacks. The couple with Nora and I are from Canada and are heading back the end of March. It is a great Canadian exodus from San Miguel on the first of April each year.
It was interesting to me that most of the people on the bus this trip were not known to me. In the past, most of us knew each other. After a while it was apparent that most travelers, not all, were from Canada. They come the first of November and leave usually the first of April.
As you can see, day two into the trip and we were all already getting to know each other. Onward tomorrow to more adventures!
