Buenas tardes from Campeche. I am still trying to figure out what I’m doing with
my life this trip. I’ve been having a great time because Mérida is a very cool city,my friends here are fun, and Melody has been the most generous host (of all time, seriously, she is the absolute best). I decided to give her the day off, though, and took a bus to the next state over and see Campeche. I got here a few hours ago, walked around, and I feel like I’ve seen it. Very cute place, but not much here. Ken and Martha said a day would be enough. Melody’s friend Amelia advised: “Maybe not even that. A few hours would be fine.” Everyone was right. I’m glad I only booked one night in my hostel.
I’m glad I came to Campeche anyway just to get back into the swing of traveling: booking a hostel, navigating maps, buying bus tickets (my cell phone remembered the WiFi network in the terminal in Mérida from two years ago, so that was neat), etc. I was pretty stationary in Puebla unless you want to count afternoon excursions with the Spanish school. I’ve been pretty stationary in Mérida, too, aside from the clinics and a few short jaunts with Ken, Martha, and Melody. Her house is so beautiful and relaxing, it’s hard to leave it. I will be, however, in just over a week. My aunt and her good friend are vacationing in Puerto Vallarta and I’m flying up to meet them. I arrive a week ahead of them which gives me some time to explore PV and Sayulita on my own. Those were two places I was supposed to visit during my last Big Trip but my plans were thwarted. A little beach time will be nice.
After the beach, maybe I’ll change it up and head to the snow. Or Mars. Time will tell.
