Road to Tuxtla
above the clouds
For security reasons we changed the route from Oaxaca to Queretaro. Since we heard from a taxi driver in San Cristobal that we’ve got very lucky that we didn’t get robbed and/or shot by rebels, we weren’t so keen about driving through the jungle for another 600km anymore. 😉
San Cristobal itself was pretty nice even though it’s one of the poorest regions in Mexico. We made a trip to a nearby village with a very special church. Sadly it was forbidden to take pictures inside the church and they already have killed people who tried to. So I was convinced to not take pictures. 😀

The numbers for yesterday: 1100km, 18h and one (probably) dead dog.
But let’s start from the beginning. We managed to get started from our apartment in Cancun at 7:30am. The track was good until the last 200km. These took us about almost 4h cause we had to go directly through the jungle with no more than 50km/h.
Totally exhausted we arrived at around twelve just to notice that the hostel fucked up our reservation and that there was no bed left. After almost one hour we got four beds in a hostel nearby. We went then via taxi to a taco place and around 2am to bed.
Just now we discovered that the way to Ochaxa will be like 600km of jungle streets. It’s gonna be interesting. 😀
