    Villadolid, you pronounce it!

    An easy day today! After a leisurely breakfast we packed and headed out of town back in the direction on Chichen Itza. Driving here is so easy with very little traffic except in Merida and generally good roads. The only worry are topes, these are vicious little speed bumps that protect every town and village from vehicles doing more than 10 kph and if you miss one the results are quite dramatic!
    We stopped for coffee in C. I. and then found our hotel in Valladolid We wandered around the centre and then checked out the town's cenote. It looked very inviting so we grabbed our swimmers and forked out the 30 pesos (1.25€) for a dip.
    To Chris's delight we found a tea shop just on 4pm before taking a break back in our room.
    We treated ourselves to dinner in the hotel as they specialised in Yucatun cooking and then went out for a nightcap of hot Mayan chocolate!
