...so after dramatically winding back the pace for a few days at zipolite, we decided it was time to move on. zipolite turned out to be a bit hit and miss. the beach was great, but still brutal.... had some great pizza, and a couple of bads ones. all up though, well worth the visit.
Broomy did not manage to completely recover from his little bout of gastro, and when it came time to leave was very emotional. we decided to head on thru puerto angel another little fishing village down the road where i thoroughly enjoyed a spot of jetty jumping, but broomy could manage to muster the strength to do anything.
we decided to avoid easy transport options, and get collectivos around... which was great... taxi drivers are the best to learn about the local lifestyle and language. unfortunately for sam, he was stuck riding the gearstick in the front of a tiny car wedged between two sweaty guys.
we had a few hours to kill in pochutla (the town where we were to get an overnight bus from), and spent it exploring the buzz of the local markets. the fresh fruit and veg is amazing... especially the mangoes!
...anyway, we braced ourself for the overnight bus to San Cristobal!
