Today went diving in a fesh water cenote. The visibility was so clear. It was quite nice. Then went to yak a swim in another cenote that we could bike to from where we are staying. It if refreshing and so nice to come out of the water and not be sticky from salt. It has been raining and has cooled down. I hope it stays like thi as it's been sweltering hot. Stance coincidence I arrived at my hostel and found it I was rooming with 3 Koreans from Canada. Then today another girl arrived in our room and she is also Korean from california. We have an all Korean room! I think in my travels I have only met only one other traveller who is Korean before now. I decided to do another dive tomorrow then will stay jere one more night and head down to Belize for some more diving. One of the best things about this hostel is they provide a. Really good make it yourself breakfast. They put out eggs and veggies and tortillas and cereal etc. I made a stir fry veggies tortilla this morning

Biked from tulum city to tulum ruin which are ruins right on the water with a beach for swimming inside the historical site. Very beautiful but I think I am losing weight from sweating so much.
It's great to be back here. In Boston we are too busy and too I
Important and have too many friends but our normal greetings consist of "piss off jerk" etc but here they have attitude also but different. After ripping you off by charging too much for something they then feel free to tell you you are pretty and ask you to go dancing. In Boston at least we are honest ;) I somehow ended up in a room with 3 other Koreans. It's just the 4 of us.

Whale sharks

Ha wonderful day snorkeling with whale sharks and giant mantas and saw a small nurse shark sleeping. Also saw a few dolphins. Whale sharks are beautiful and the largest was probably sound 11m long. I was too close to take any good pics. A wonderful day on the ocean. It's definitely the end of the season as we only saw a group of 4 and alot of solo ones but it was still amazing.
I am sitting here writing this while someone next to me is eating a bi bag of cape cod potato chips.

Cancun and cozumel and now isla holbox

I arrived last week and spent a day walking around playa del Carmen. It's pretty developped and quite a party town but I wasn't impressed. So I took the ferry to Cozumel and stayed at a really nice cheap place with a pool! I did a few dives which were really nice! Although I am partial to Bonaire still. And its quite overrun with tour ships. Then I heard there were whale sharks so I decided to change plans and go on up to isla holbox. It's a really chill island not very developed with beautiful sand roads and no cars only golf carts. All the places I have been to have been very nice And I really like this place although it's the first place without AC and it's quite hot here but I survived Ecuador just fine without AC most of the trip. So far the best meals were a taco that came with a dish a melted cheese. I am not sure how I was supposed to eat it but I spooned the cheese onto the tortilla. I also had some hot out of the oven corn bread with nice full kernels of corn (ok yes I went back twice) and also had what looked like a turnover with a cheese and tomato filling. It was good but a bit stance basically a turnover with pizza filling and they sprinkled sugar on the top. Other than the sugar it was good. Well I am going on a snorkel tomorrow I am excited about so I hoPe it's good. So far I have been very impressed with the places I have stayed. I will head south after I am done here to go to tulum then back to Belize so far one of my favorite countries. Then hopefully after Belize I will start to spend less. Diving is an expensive sport so I will do a dive in tulum and a few in Belize then hopefully not too many until maybe costa rica.
It's also nice that I have had wifi everywhere I stayed ok it hasn't always worked well but it's still nice.
I started the trip off grumpy cause for the first time in a long time I overpacked. But I need to focus on the positive and try to get as much out of this time as I can.
