Entering our room required unlocking two locks, and I noticed that there were four locks on our inside door, that makes one feel real secure. As we entered the room I noticed bars over the windows and barking dogs in the alley below greeted us, this is going to be quite a night.

All of this traveling and opulence had made everyone hungry, as we made our way to the restaurant we passed through the bar.  We found several British soldiers passing the time by getting soused, can’t say I blame them. We had passed by their barracks on the way into town, the barracks were built below the road level and because of the extremely wet conditions, the solders were walking around in at least six inches of mud all day. I wondered what they had done to deserve being stationed here, it must have been pretty bad. The troops acted as if they had been lost at sea for months and we had come to rescue them.


The restaurant turned out to be a buffet, after observing the condition of the food I quickly realized that it would not be a good idea to eat any vegetables, my dinner consisted of whatever meat I could scrounge up and beer. (The bread was extremely stale, could have been used as a hockey puck.)We had traveled all this way to visit Lubaantun, the pyramid where Anna Mitchell-Hedges had discovered the crystal skull many years before. Tomorrow should be interesting.
