From San Cristobal de Las Casas to Palenque.
It is 221 km. from Cristobal to Palenque it took us 8 hours to drive.
First there were soo many pilgrims. As Dec. 12th. Is Virgin Guadalupe day. Then the roads were very narrow and a lot of washouts and in-numerous topes. The indigenous people really want nothing to do with the tourist or any outsiders. The scenery made it all worth while. We stopped at Agua Azul to see the waterfalls and as it has been raining for 2 days thy were spectacular. Ate some empanadas there, but thy had very little filling.
RV park in Palenque had no WiFi or Internet and there were only us and a couple from Quebec who did not speak english. It rained very heavy all night and most of the morning while we toured the ruins.
We had smelled some LP gas around our camper and today Norbert checked and sure enough there was a leak, so off we went to find a new valve. Finally fount one and Norbert did the repairs in the parking lot, try that in Canada.
Lucky for us due to the rain at, night the monkys were quiet.
Big Hug to all
Norbert and Greti
