It was another hot day, reaching 100. I passed into Chiapas without a welcome sign, or maybe I missed it while mindlessly spinning my pedals through the soup. I don’t have much memory from today, the heat just shuts everything down. 

I was planning on visiting the ruins in the morning, but I hear they are crowded on weekends. I think instead I’ll sleep in, walk to town and have lattes and figure out the deal with buses, leaving the ruins for Monday morning. I need to meet a package in Tuxtla Gutiérrez on Tuesday, I’m thinking it should be easy by bus.
