ola!! ok well since myblog lets see.... oh yes that night continued to drink and got a crowd of nine of us from our hostel to go to a mexican reggae club. there are hardly any clubs in mexico city which seems a little strange despite the huge population but i suppose its cos they're all devout catholics! anyway as a group we trekked to the club getting on the subway, asking lots of people for directions. It was only a small club and we were the only foreigners it seemed and also the only ones really dancing, although it was a strange mix to dance too, chilled out reggae music with a pumping beat..different!! Bob wasn't there but there were a few try hards with dreadlocks! Was a good night and managed to get a taxi home for real cheap.
yesterday i did go to Xochilimico, where the market occurs on the water. Between me and guys from the sister hostel we managed to round together a crowd of 16, was like a school trip! got the subway there and then managed to get all of us on one boat, generally the punters (people who punt the boat!!( will try and charge upto 300 peso per person but with bartering we were told to aim for 100peso each. As we were such a large crowd we managed to get it for 50 peso each, bargain, which meant after buying food and drinks from other boats floating on the canal we still only spent 100 peso! result! oo thats 5 pounds!!! however if i'd been on my own i'm sure i would have been conned as i don't speak spanish... am relying on other travellers that do!!!
Then last night went to the sister hostel just 2 blocks away and watched a bizarre music festival on tv and then had a boogie with a cute gay couple from new york to stereophonics!
today...plan is to chill out and jus sort things out this morning and then meeting with some of the people went on the boats with yesterday in the afternoon!!
heading to cancun on sunday!!!
thats all folks!.. for now// adios!!!
