Travels with Mike travel blog




Well it's been a few days since I did one of these notes. I was thinking about my last message and I think missed a few things. There was a pretty sizeable earthquake one night. A 6.4 but it happened at about 3:30 am and I just rolled over and went back to sleep. Also our room had bats flying around frequently because it was open to the outside. They were just little things but I just remember Melanie, Sara, Tiffany and Sabrina screaming at Mom's house one year because of a bat. It didn't take long to get used to them.

The last few days I've been hanging out with some friends I met here in Leon. The other night we went to the salsa club and had a lot of fun. The locals sure can dance and I sure can't salsa. I sat and watched most of the night. They serve bottles of rum to the table. Small bottles a bit smaller than a mickey and they're $8. Then they bring a bottle of pop (yes a real glass bottle) and a bucket of ice and some glasses. Then the table just helps themselves and they bring more around as you need it. Well a few bottles later and it was time to hit the street for some street meat. After trying to get into an afterhours club the I grabbed a street burger and took off home.

The next day a couple of us went to the beach and then out for supper. We were going to hit another club but with all the beach time my heel was cracked and starting to hurt so I took off home. Tonight we're going to a beach party at Salinas Grandes, which is the isolated beach I was going to stay at before. It's a beach party complete with a huge bonfire, so it should be fun.

I'll check in again later
