Today started with an information session before we hit the streets for a tour of San Cristobel….there is so much history but I am not going into here , only show some of the photos taken in and around the market area…
The tour was I think only supposed to be an hour or so but with such a large group it turned wwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaay longer than that. But good to see the sights and get to know San Cristobel. When I have travelled I always like to hit the markets I think it gives a real sense of the people.
Later in the afternoon Joanna .Lisa the clubs president and Gillian ,the lovely niece of Joanna and I climbed some pretty steep steps to watch the sun set. The steps looked daunting ( I am not as young as I used to be) but we made it !
And it was worth it!
In the evening a few of us went to see a play at the Pakal Roja theatre in the centre of town. It was very well put together and the costumes amazing ,the technical artistry was second to none. The show depicted the life of King Pakal of Pelenque… and more than that… He has the same birthday as myself and another lady of the club Nancy which is actually today 23rd March. So happy birthday Nancy!
From there time to hit some Latin music to celebrate the birthdays girls… It was just up the road from the hotel so not far to walk if we got sloshed .But we didn’t! But did enjoy the music and the dancing .
Dropped into bed for another night of sound sleep ready for our journey today!
