Cenote Land

Still not feeling great, but had to take Keith to see at least one cenote.  For those of you not familiar with the term cenote or the area - the Yucatan is filled with sink holes that are linked to underground river systems that flow to the ocean.  This is a good place to get cave or cavern certified.  My favorite one close by is Gran Cenote.  It was the same too.  You only get about half the coolness without having a snorkel and mask.  I´ve always wanted to dive Dos Ojos or any of the cenotes in the area, but I´m always too cheap and am holding out for reef and wreck dives in Honduras.  Also much cheaper.

1st class ADO bus to Chetumal in the afternoon.  Note to others: many of the nicer buses in Mexico have the A/C on full blast, so I always take my sweatshirt on the bus and wear my shoes.  This also saves a lot of space in the pack.

Not much in Chetumal.  Stayed at Hostal Chetumal.  Lilia the owner has converted her home into a hostal.  She is a very nice woman.  My bed was good (firm) and the place was nice until some ahole moved the floor fan and I sweated all night.
