~ Snapped this photo of my shoes after boarding the overnight bus from Palenque to Tulum. Four days: | no shower | no bath | Two of these wash-less days were spent at the Rainbow Gathering camp, which means I was damp | I was muddy: Thank you, surprise-epic-monsoon-storm. I look and smell like a mess. But I don’t care. I’m off to Tulum. I’ve spent the past few weeks running around mountains and climbing volcanoes. As much as I love it up here, I’m ready for beaches and warmer weather; even if it means putting up with over-priced drinks and Western tourists in fanny packs (and most-likely demanding that the locals speak English).
