Amie and I just went to see the mass at the cathedral in Valladolid. We took photos, video, and recorded sound. The room was packed. The sound of the chanting mixed beautifully with the noises of the approaching storm. The people chanted as the storm grew. As the service ended thunderclaps joined in with the applause. I looked to the sky and could see that Emily was here. The rain began just as the priest finished. The worst of the storm hits us tonight at about 1am.

Amie and I and our friends Chris and Celine are going now to take refuge in the hotel. We baught all the calling cards and food and water we need. All we can do now is wait.

Waiting out the storm

We have made our way to Valladolid with the help of two Swiss cats with a rental car. We decided to skip going to Merida because the bus journey in the middle of the night just had too many unforseeable possibillities. We feel much safer here in Valladolid than on the coast and will wait the storm out from this loocation and then head south to Chiapas or Guatamala.

More when we know more.....
