Ola senors and senoritas!
Well there have been advancements in my spanish or should i say my acting sign language! slowly getting to grips with the odd word to get by on! last night had lots of fun, just hanging out with a cute gay couple from new york called Oscar and Shane and my fellow bunk bed roomie Orly, we laughed so much from just doing silly things!
Today have had a bit of an upset stomach for the first time on my travels so i´ve been lucky so far according to traveller gospel! Anyway didn´t let it stop me, as i visited the teotihuacan pyramids today with an organised tour from the hostel. Was fun, my favourite part finding out about the many uses of a cactus! It can provide paper, produce tequila, be a needle and thread, used as soap and is edible!! we had cactus and cheese pitta style sandwichs for lunch...i was not a fan but to be polite ate one of my 2!! Also tasted lots of different tequilas, including mescali with a worm in it! Didn´t hallucinate but shook very visibly for a few minutes after! not sure if that was because i´d just had 6 shots of tequila or the worm!! Almond flavoured tequila was real tasty!
After our drinking we climbed the pyramids... thats a challenge for you all to try, 6 shots of tequila and then walk 264 steep steps in the heat...or just tog yourselves up and see what it feels like as England isn´t as hot as Mexico. Not that i´m trying to make you jealous! let me know how you get on if you accept my challenge!
Tonight, probably just hang around the hostel as have a plane at 7.30am so need to leave my hostel at 5.30am....Cancun here i come. Looking forward to chilling out on the beach for a while!
