Woke up early to get some more shopping in bought to much again then grabbed a quick sandwich before heading to the bus station .I was a bit nervous about the bus journey as don’t know what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised, it is probably even more comfortable than a plane. I had 2 seats so I basically slept the whole way to Palenque, then I arrived at the station and took a taxi to the hotel. It was a bit of a waste as it is really only a three minute walk but hey if you don’t know what can you do??
The hotel is okay, it is probably my least favourite so far as it hasn’t got any atmosphere at all, but hey it is only for one night anyway. I dropped my bags and yes you guessed it went off exploring the new town. Well it is actually really boring, I can see why it is only used as a base , there are a few souvenir shops and a market in the central square otherwise it consists of lots of dodgy looking restaurants. I am not painting a good picture but this is my opinion .Anyway decided to head back to the hotel and had dinner at the best western hotel opposite. Then off to bed
