Palenque, And It Is HOT!

We just pulled into Palenque's Mayabell PV park and it is HOT! 104F in the shade! The power is good enough to run the A/C on low so that is what it is doing. I am not sure if we will go to the ruins. It is very uncomfortable walking and climbing in this heat and we have seen them twice before.

The drive here was fine. Two hundred and some kilometers of secondary road, much of it under construction. We picked up a little mud when they over-watered one section of dirt. We will just hang around in the motorhome until the music starts in the palapa restaurant that is on the grounds. They have good music every night and the food is always great. After that we will listen to the Howler Monkeys in the trees around the park.

  1. !04F in the shade!!! Almost too hat but who's complaining right. Hope the monkeys performed for you.

  2. Whew! That's warm. Glad you are having a good time.

    Thanks for the map. Hard to figure out where you are sometimes without it.

  4. We had to wear earplugs when we were there because the monkeys were SO loud! I hope it cools off a bit for you.

  5. It would be nice to mix mid 40's northern CA temperatures with some of that 104 degrees you are in.

    Might have to fight a bit of snow when crossing the passes into Oregon today.

  6. Hey did you run into Peter there...AKA The Wizard. He lives in the bottom of the treehouse. We enjoyed our time there very much!!
