2.2.20. Carmen to Bacalar.

Ciudad de carman to Bacalar.
510ml. This was done over 9days cycling. 1st day 61ml and wild camped at the beach. 69ml to Campeche next day. I was in pain. I developed a lump on my arse hole. I stayed in couch surfers house and no pain in morning but the lump is still there. I rode out on the malecon and 40ml to Hecelchakan. Arse started feeling sore again so found a cheap hotel early to give it a rest. Next day I rode 56ml to Umán. After going on Google I decide I have an abscess. Next day I rode 41ml. To Tixkokob. On the way I ride around Merida looking for spare cones for my hubs but can’t find anywhere after visiting 6 shops. I call at the doctor’s who says because of my weak immune system I got an abscess. I get cream and antibiotics. I stay at warm shower hosts Jerry and Connie and have 2 days off to rest my arse. I really enjoyed my stay here and got on well with Jerry and Connie. I was sad to leave. Next day I ride 58ml. To Piste and find a cheap hotel for the night. In the morning I call in to chichen itza pyramid site. What a rip off. No where near as good as San Martin but 5 times more expensive because many tourists from the cruise ships visit so massive price hike. Pyramid of the sun 75pesos, here 500pesos and not as impressive. 58ml. Today to Tihosuko. I ask a guy if he knows a hotel and luck would have it, he spoke English and said no hotel in the small town village but I could sleep on the floor at his house. Happy days. So many kind people on my journey. 52ml to Felipe Carrillo today. Very hot as normal and stayed at a hostel in town. Only me in there so I had a peaceful night. Well I arrive at Bacalar after 70ml today. A nice town on the coast and I meet a Frenchman cycling on my way into town. He shows me a really cheap campsite on the sea and so I stay here for the night before going through the border to Belize tomorrow.
