Hola a todos,

Last night we met some french people who invited us to go with them by car to visit Uxmal. So we got up early and made our bags and while waiting for them we went on the internet to get PaulineĀ“s finals results (77%). Then when teh french people were ready we got into the car and hit the road to Uxmal. After a few kilometres, we were stopped by the police because they wanted to take the car. But we negociated and could continue our trip. We arrived at Uxmal after three hours of driving. We got out of the car super wet. We visited the ruins with them in the sun. Afterwards we said goodbye and took a bus to Merida. We looked for a hostel in Merida. We found a nice cheap one with a swimming pool. We got in it as soon as we arrived but two minutes latert a storm started so we got out. We decide to go visit the city but it starts to rain thus we decide to go fast to the supermarket. On the way out we met a Belgian guy who has a computer and accepts to let us put our pictures on the internet which took us two hours. After that we went out to go to a dance but on the way we saw another dance a folkloric one. We watched and atferwards we talked with some girls to ask what was this show about. It was the Rotary who got together for a meeting. We took some pictures with them and mexican girls took some pictures of us. Then we went to get something to eat. We found a nice restaurant with a weird name. We met there some guys who live in Playa del Carmen and who want to take us there on a guided tour. What we ate was very nice and we left at midnight to go to bed.

No just passing by. They just wanted to control us first but then they realised that the vehicle wasn't in order for some papers.
