27 Oct

I lost Kel into the vortex of a hangover today, after (yet another) massive night of drinking last night with friends from home. It’s the worst he’s felt since he’s been here- I feel for him but am also glad he’s one step closer to my level. His main movements for the day were from the bed to the floor to the hammock (not to mention quite a few bowel movements, I’m told).

I went with a bunch of people from the hostel to a beach called Akumal, where I swam with turtles and little sting rays. Super pretty beach and a very chilled out afternoon. Kel’s going to do his dive certificate in Belize, so he didnt miss too much.

Tomorrow I think we’re going to head to the ruins and then make our way to Belize the day after that… though its a bit of a black hole for time here, so the chances are high that we end up staying for a few days. We decided to cancel our Carnaval accommodation in Brazil because of timing, so we have more breathing space for Central America, which I’m stoked about.
