The following day Will and I asked if we could just relax at their place and catch up on some washing and emails which we did in-between eating all the wonderful Mexican foods we were presented. This days breakfast set the precedence for the soon to be daily breakfast banquets we loved. We also met Fortino and Clara’s daughter Alejandra who acted as translator and enabled the conversation to flow with a little more comprehension from both sides. It was decided that the following day we would visit the Teotihuacan ruins and on Sunday we would see some museums. So Fortino and Clara drove us out to the ruins where we wandered around the huge site in the hot sun with the thousands of other tourists. Its an amazing part of Mexico’s history and has been well restored to show its former glory. Afterwards Fortino and Clara treated us yet again to lunch, this time at the amazing Grutas restaurant where as well as fantastic food we also watched a traditional dance show. The stage of the show was right buy the tables and went on as we ate our feast inside a huge natural cavern filled with candles and colourful decor.
And thanks to everyone who reads my rambling blogs Will and I can’t wait to start paying all this kindness forward once we get back to NZ.
