Hi guys good to hear from you

after coming down off the Devils backbone the climate changes, becomes lowland jungle

and also becomes a lot wetter with plenty of mangroves in the brackish water

This should have been my first clue to what the climate was going to be like in San Blas but no, it was so hot and humid I talked to the hotel receptionist with a tidal wave of sweat running off me, the good thing about that was it kept the jejhunes from chewing on me

this is the hotel I ended up at to get into air conditioning

the pool was really nice, San Blas has one little secret though it's the wala wala restaurant, owned by Pedro

the food is excellent, there's lots of it, it's cheap and you get good conversation with Pedro

there were torrential downpours both nights I was there, since there's no drainage in San Blas this is what you get

I actually liked San Blas but decided to leave and get up into the hills so headed to Magdelana on the way to Guadalajara

This was the road out of San Blas, all you can do is stand on the pegs, slip the throttle and hope you don't hit a misplaced cobblestone
