We bring you a new delivery of the trip to the imperial capitals of China. In the previous story we explain our arrival to Xi'an from Pingyao, and this time we continue our journey through China visiting the star attraction of Xi'an: the incredible terracotta warriors. Although the terracotta warriors have given Xi'an a worldwide fame, they are not in the city proper, but an hour by bus.
They say that the road that goes from Palenque to San Cristóbal de las Casas is a hellish journey of curves and sidewalks of about six hours, but, if I'm honest, I hardly remember it. But as Jack the Ripper said: "let's go parts." That morning I promised them very happy: until eleven our bus did not leave for San Cristóbal de las Casas and, as the excursion on horseback through the Palenque National Park was aborted because at least 4 hours we did not have, I decided to dedicate Morning to sleep and rest.
The next day we woke up with better weather perspectives. It was a bright sun, although a wind was blowing at times strong and cold. As breakfast at the hotel was separate, we prefer to go out and have breakfast in one of Madrid's bakeries with more tradition: La Mallorquina, founded in 1894. On the ground floor there is a bar where they serve coffees and pastries, but we go up to the lounge of the Upstairs and we had the classic breakfast of the house: two coffees with milk and two Neapolitans, one of cream and another of chocolate.
The ruins of Dougga is one of the best archaeological sites in Tunisia. They are 6 kilometers from the town of Téboursouk and it is quite easy to get there from the capital by public transport. It is a full day excursion, since there is a while from Tunisia. However, in our case getting there ended up looking like an episode of Beijing Express.
& Iexcl; How time goes by! Today we end the first month of the year and once again we briefly review what has been this month on Instagram. It is a tradition to start the year with a theme party. Two years ago it was the Hawaiian party in which we put flowered shirts and garlands on the neck, the past we traveled to the far west, and we shared the last dinner of the year between cowboys and outlaws.
This summer we have decided to travel in Spain. Before embarking on the Camino de Santiago, we spent three days in the province of Albacete. And you may wonder: what can be done in Albacete for three days? In this post we will show you that much more can be done than you think.
