Response: I only lost a couple of pictures from Medina, I´m going to get copies from Tim.
I´ll e-mail Courtney and get her to pick me up. I don´t want everyone there as I just want to get home and go to sleep. I´ll go out for dinner Saturday night and then probably head over to Sitki´s.
See you in a couple of days.
Response: Only a few days to go. We´re travelling to Oaxaca tonight and will get a plane from there to Mexico City, very early on Thursday (7am flight with a 12 hour stop over in Mexico City, not happy Jan)
Response: Slightly disappointing that it´s almost over, will see you guys at the end of the week.
Response: REAL Mexican food is a lot different that what you´d get in Australia, but I don´t mind it.
Will try and catch up with you guys on Saturday night or Sunday.
Response: I can definitely empaphise with you now. We arrived in San Cristobal last night and now the altitude is playing games with us but its not as bad as the food poisoning. Will see you in about a week. Give my best to Sumit.
Response: I´m feeling a lot better and I think it was just a case of MILD food poisoning. I actually think the cuttlery I used may not have been washed properly rather than it being the food.
Will try to put some pictures of Palenque up soon, no USB ports seem to be available here.
Response: As I just said to Courtney´s e-mail, I´m feeling a lot better now, Tim and Don also had food poisoning in the US and lasted a few days, so I´m lucky mine was only a day.
The trip was fine and the Palenque ruins today were awesome.
Response: Everything´s alright now, the Palenque ruins were spectactular and I hope to get some pics up soon.
Response: Anythingn else you'd like me to pass on?
Response: A federale, young Nick, is a cop.
Don's beard is coming along nicely and we haven't wondered across any parrots yet.
Response: Cheers mate, the local food is much better than Taco Bell. The mexican food that is served in western countries is also a lot different than what you actually get in Mexico.
Response: Touch wood with the federales, haven´t run in to them once.
Chichen Itza was awesome, I think it would be 10 times better during the spring or autumn equinox when you get to see the snake descend El Castillo.
It´s pretty easy to get around Mexico and I´m slowly picking up more and more Spanish as I go (numbers are the only real barrier for me now)
Response: You´re a funny man Quokka, will talk when I get back (hopefully I´ll be using that saying tonight)
Response: hey mate,
good to hear from you. I know Courtney was trying to tee up a time for Katie, her, yourself and I to go out for dinner which we´ll definitely have to do when I get back.
Response: Cheers mate, am missing the Friday get togethers but with beer for only $1.50 you can´t go wrong.
See you guys soon.
Response: the backpack is going great guns, i´ve only bought a couple of things but will hopefully buy some more stuff soon.
Don´s been in a bit of trouble, being biten by something (not harmful) but which he was alergic to and needing medication and then he thought he´d go exploring at Chichen Itza and feel down, hurting himself.
Was going to upload some pictures now but forgot to bring my USB cable so will do so tomorrow.
Response: Things are great although we are having to rush a little as we´re not going to Mexico City but need to be in Oaxaca (Wahaca) the day I leave so I can catch a plane from there to Mexico City.
Will pass on my best to the boys for you.
Response: Thanks for the message mate and it was good talking to you on Messenger while I was on. Have a safe trip back and hopefully catch up with you within the next year or two.
Response: Shut up fool and get back to writing your love e-mails.
Response: You honestly think, I´d show myself in meat hangers. More pics will be up soon, I took about 40 at Chichen Itza alone.
Response: Funny you mention the fridge magnet I got one today when I was in Chichen Itza. It´s a nice pic of El Castillo (the main pyramid) at the spring equinox, will explain it to your Mum when I get back.
Things are pretty awesome here and I´m leading the language barrier charge, a lot of seems it could be transferable to Italian (which I´m more keen than ever to learn now)
Anyway, hope the house is coming along nicely, give my best to the boys and Belinda and will see you in a couple of weeks.
Response: Money´s not to bad, I think I´ve only taken out about $500.
Off to Chichen Itza today, we´ll see the ruins tomorrow. Spent the night in the biosphere reserve last night which was awesome. It was great to get away from the cars and spend it in a real rural area
Response: Thanks mate, will tell all when I get back
Response: The beach party wasn´t really a beach party, rather at a bar right near the beach, it was still pretty cool
As I said to Dad off to Chichen Itza today and the ruins tomorrow.
I´ve had some problems uploading pictures, will try to do so now.
Response: Thanks for the message man, I can only imagine what kind of trouble you lot are getting up to. Give a big hello to Sumit and Phil for me and will see you in a couple of weeks
