The adventures of the Mel

Mendoza

ARGENTINA | Saturday, 26 Apr 2008 | Views [1958] | Comments [3]

Hola my little furry monkeys, All is well in the Argentinean camp, though not much to report. We walked around Mendoza today, and it really is a beautiful city. The original city of Mendoza was destroyed in an earthquake a couple of hundred years ago, ... Read more >


Central Argentina

ARGENTINA | Friday, 25 Apr 2008 | Views [641] | Comments [1]

It’s been surprisingly difficult to find places with wi-fi, or with computers that aren’t obsolete, especially considering how much more western Argentina is than Mexico. But, I soldier on. It’s a hard life, but I guess somebody’s gotta do it. ... Read more >


The road to Parana

ARGENTINA | Sunday, 20 Apr 2008 | Views [792]

I’m sitting on my bed typing this entry in crappy-ass Microsoft Word because it is surprisingly difficult to find internet here in Parana. I must admit I’m disappointed that it’s not spelt the same as the fish. There is a river here, but I don’t think ... Read more >


The spectacular Iguazu Falls

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 15 Apr 2008 | Views [1546] | Comments [1]

Wow. Wow. Wow. That about sums up the falls, quite eloquently too I think. They were just spectacular. I don't even know what to say about them! For just $A5, we were transported to and from the Falls and given a small lunch. This is more like the Argentinian ... Read more >


Bwenos Eye-rez

ARGENTINA | Tuesday, 15 Apr 2008 | Views [567]

I quite like Buenos Aires as a city. Much more western than anything in I-have-the-population-of-your-entire-country-in-my-capital Mexico, but still with its own distinct personality and Latin America feel. We only spent a couple of days there (we will ... Read more >


Adios Me-hi-co

MEXICO | Sunday, 13 Apr 2008 | Views [835] | Comments [5]

Before I embark upon my journey through South America, I must say adios to Mexico, or perhaps just hasta luego. You never know... In keeping in line with my farewell to Canada (and a gross lack of time - if you haven't noticed, it's my birthday and ... Read more >


Caribbean beaches

MEXICO | Wednesday, 9 Apr 2008 | Views [793] | Comments [3]

Good afternoon folks, I trust this post finds you all well and enjoying work *relatively small snigger*. I have just spent 5 days lounging around on Caribbean beaches, so I don't really have too much to report. I know, you hate me. It's okay, you're ... Read more >


Chicken Pizza

MEXICO | Friday, 4 Apr 2008 | Views [928] | Comments [1]

Greetings earthlings, I write to you hastily from an internet cafe in the hope that I will finish this post before they cut me off in an unknown amount of time. I don't have too much to report though. Yesterday we arrived in Piste, a small town just ... Read more >


Palenque ruins

MEXICO | Wednesday, 2 Apr 2008 | Views [1529] | Comments [2]

The Palenque ruins can really be described in one word: Oh-my-goodness-wow-wow-wow! An ancient Mayan civilisation spread out over 15km² (only a small part excavated, originally spread out over nearly 130km²!), built entirely without metal tools, pack ... Read more >


San Cristobal de las Casas

MEXICO | Wednesday, 2 Apr 2008 | Views [813]

Wow. What an amazing few days. When I left you last, I was about to explore San Cristobal de las Casas. It was really a beautiful little town, albeit with temperamental weather. One minute it is sunny, shiny and sweaty hot, the next minute raining ... Read more >


Oaxaca and Tehuantepec

MEXICO | Sunday, 30 Mar 2008 | Views [1743] | Comments [1]

Surprisingly, we got up okay to catch the bus (for us this was surprising, because last time we tried to get up early we had to go back to bed, but apparently we can blame this on the high elevation that Mexico City is at (2240m). Well, I can. I don’t ... Read more >


The amazing ruins at Teotihuacan

MEXICO | Sunday, 30 Mar 2008 | Views [1111] | Comments [2]

Hola my little furry monkeys, It has been a while since I’ve posted, or at least it feels like a while. Snuffy and I have been quite busy travelling across Mexico and seeing stuff. Yeah, stuff. We like stuff. I took Snuffy around Mexico City, ... Read more >


Guanajuato

MEXICO | Tuesday, 25 Mar 2008 | Views [784] | Comments [3]

I’m sitting at the bus station feeling a strange mixture of excitement and sadness. I’m excited because when I get to Mexico City in several hours, I will finally get some Snuffy cuddles, of which I have been sorely deprived. Estoy un poco triste por ... Read more >


Drive back to Chihuahua

MEXICO | Saturday, 22 Mar 2008 | Views [579] | Comments [1]

Hopefully this won't be a long post!! Got up in the morning to drive back to Chihuahua with Pablo and Norma. Firstly an hour drive along bumpiness until we hit paved road. I never thought I'd be so happy to see a road!! We drove for about 3 hours until ... Read more >


The most amazing experience...

MEXICO | Saturday, 22 Mar 2008 | Views [3337] | Comments [1]

Onto the most amazing experience I’ve had yet. We left the lodge in Cerocahui at about 11am and drove on a bumpy ‘road’ for about 2 hours to Urique. Along the way we stopped at several places to look out in awe at the spectacular views of the canyon ... Read more >


Into Copper Canyon

MEXICO | Saturday, 22 Mar 2008 | Views [694] | Comments [2]

I have just returned from the most amazing experience. I don’t know where to begin! When I left you last readers, I was headed into Copper Canyon for Easter. I caught the train at 7 in the morning for the (almost painfully) slow journey to the canyon.... Read more >


The town, not the dog

MEXICO | Wednesday, 19 Mar 2008 | Views [469]

My butt hurts. Yep, Mexican food finally caught up with me. It took an entire week and a half. Good going really, I thought. It has made it into my bottom five of firsts in Mexico (for the past 24 hours anyway) 5. Loco taxi driver nearly killing ... Read more >


Tlaquepaque and Guadalajara

MEXICO | Monday, 17 Mar 2008 | Views [1463] | Comments [4]

I am job. I mean, burnt. I can't decide whether it is completely awesome because I am finally in warm weather and so the toll of spending hours in the sun, or whether it actually sucks. I guess I'll find out when I wake up tomorrow. I've spent the past ... Read more >


Morelia and the Flutterby Sanctuary

MEXICO | Friday, 14 Mar 2008 | Views [719] | Comments [3]

Hola! Firstly I want to thank everyone who comments on my journal. I LOVE reading your comments, and I don't want anyone to be disheartened by the fact that I rarely reply - my time on the net is limited. It's fantastic to know that people are reading ... Read more >


Ciudad de Meh-hi-co

MEXICO | Wednesday, 12 Mar 2008 | Views [902]

Hurray! I'm not dead. Aren't you lucky? The 'dangers' of Mexico, I'm pleased to report, are all hype (provided you are careful with taxis and have some common sense [oh no. I'm screwed!]). The biggest problem here is that virtually nobody speaks English.... Read more >
