left Mexico city to goto Acapulco on the Bus,cost $25, about 12.50pounds for a 5hr journey through the mountains and beaut countryside in the most comfortable bus ever,the seats reclined to nearly horizontal with aircon to boot! need it here cos it was 39'c wen we got here.the hostel wasnt very good in Acapulco,small room with not much atmosphere,we went straight down to the Condesa beach which was 5min walk and it was our first time to step into the Pacific Ocean,cudnt believe how warm it was.no shrinkage inside the trunks dept. was just like a lukewarm bath.altho the waters didnt look very clean was ok. went to a place called Tacos and beer for dinner rite on the beach, guess wot we had? exactly- tacos n beer. next morning we went to the the beach n swm to an island off the beachaout 300 metres, half way i told Tom that there might be sum sharks cos the waters were unusually warm, needless to say he started swimming like a speed boat to get there asap:-) we climed to the top and got a pretty amazing view of the whole Acapulco Bay. we went upto the cliff divers place but they were only on in the evening so didnt see them. we had a nitebus organised to another town.
