The camera

Today we will drive in two hours from Villahermosa to Palenque. But first we visited a museum. It was very nice to see as they had a lot of ancient statues and historic artifacts. They also got animals like monkeys, crocodiles and different kind of birds. After we visited the birds Linda an I walked further through the parc. It was beautiful green with large trees and enormous plants. After a while we had to go to the ladies room and the toilet lady welcomed us. As there were a lot of musquitos it was quite a short visit and after washing our hands we visited a little cafe to drink something. After 10 minutes Linda jumped and said "oh no my camera". While she went to the toilet she had put her stuff on to the ground, her backpack and her camera as well.

We quickly went back to the toilets but of course there was no sign of the camera anymore. We asked as good as our Spanish was to the toiletlady if see saw Linda's camera, but she didn't. Unfornately a schoolclass had passed by too. So we asked the teacher if anyone had seen the camera. But boy what were they willing to help. They stared at us but of course they didn't see it. As there was nothing else to do we walked to the exit of the parc.

At the exit/entrance of the parc there was the doormen lodge. To a man in uniform with a big mustache we told us of the lost camera. He ensured us to take care of it right away. Through his walkie talkie he informed another collegue to search for the camera. As he was eager to find it he ran to the lost camera scene while we were waiting nearby the lodge. After 15 minutes the mustache man came back and nodded his head. There was no carmera found and his search and rescue party was over. As we had a roundtrip with a group our gay tourleader advised us not to go to the policestation as it would take too much time and often without result. So we traveled further without Linda's camera....
