How rude!

Today we awoke to rain - what a cheek! Haven't seen rain since we were in America. Almost forgotten what to do and what to wear. And it's quite chilly in the evening - will have to get the old fleece out from the bottom of the rucksack. Hmm, hope it's not like this in Guatemala. Poor hubby doesn't even have any trousers to wear. Now, we shouldn't laugh at him but it is quite amusing. He bought a pair of those trousers where you can zip off the legs and they turn in to shorts, and then you zip the legs back on when it gets a bit drafty round the ankles. However, somewhere between here and Mexico City, hubby has lost his legs. Chortle. So he has no long trousers; although someone out there has possibly become the lucky owner of two tubes of beige fabric with half a zip on the top.

Anyway, I digress. We're now in San Cristobal de las Casas. A very lovely colonial town up in the hills. Got here yesterday afternoon after a 5 hour bus trip from Palenque - just loving those buses! There are lots and lots of lovely cafes, restaurants and shops in SC, not to mention the great colonial buildings. Found a lovely bakery with choc brownies, lemon meringue pie, carrot cake - did I mention I was immersing myself in the local cuisine?
