Buenos Dias everyone,
welcome to the first installment of the Daniel Yeow / Nick Sheridan 5-month Latin American Odyssey.
Firstly, if you would for any reason at all not wish to receive any future updates, please email me back and I will remove you from my “travel spam” list. In my characteristic disorganisation, I didn’t get a chance to ask everyone about whether or not they wanted to be added to this list (indeed, I’m sure many of you are hearing about this trip for the first time). I’m very sorry if anyone on this list really didn’t want to get this email. Apologies also if you receive more than one copy of this email.

so far, we’re still on track (we’ve only been here for a day)
We arrived in Mexico City last night after about 26 hours of travelling of which 20 hours were spent in the air. The journey was relatively uneventful save for us almost getting duped by an unregistered taxi driver in mexico city and Nick getting his sunscreen confiscated at the security checkpoint in Auckland. We are staying in a place called Casa del los Amigos and the people here are very friendly (I even managed a game of go last night – I got smoked). The weather here is beautiful with the temperature here a very mild 17 degrees with clear blue skies. We plan to be in Mexico city for another two days before heading off to Guanajuarto to spend two weeks doing a Spanish language course. After that, we’ll bum around Mexico for a bit and probably travel to Cuba by boat from Cancun. At least that’s the plan…
I haven’t yet had the opportunity to connect my laptop computer to the internet so avid readers of danielyeow.com and my travel blog (URL above) will have to wait.
I hope everyone is well. I hope to hear from you all very soon. Hasta Luego!
p.s. I’m not going to spam either mucaas_social or mums-com so if you know someone on either of those lists who would like to be added to my travel spam list, please tell them to let me know.
p.p.s Apologies for the bad grammar and spelling, 26 hours of travelling + not much sleep = very tired Daniel
