The town of San Cristobal is small and quaint and also, surprisingly cold.
Yesterday I actually had to use the winter jacket I had packed for when I get to Europe and the temperatures dip down again.
It’s still a nice 15-20 degrees Celcius but with the town surrounded by mountains there’s a bit of a wind that picks up here.
Honestly you could walk down the sunny side of the street in shorts and cross the street to the shady side wishing you had bundled up.
So, with that in mind, I had no idea what clothes to wear as I headed out to the 10am walking tour.
Of course it was almost moot as I only woke up at 9:30 and had to race to get ready and out the door on to the walking tour.
I got there just in time and off we headed onto a tour of the city.
I’ve been on alot of free walking tours and most have been good but there’s always some that are duds.
This walking tour, sadly, was a dud. The guide was nice and friendly but there was no interaction in the tour and all we did was go to churches, art galleries and cafes.
I kid you not, we went to 5 of the 6 churches here in town.
Anyway, I did get to see the city and wander around different streets that I hadn’t seen before so I just used the time to take some nice photos of the town.
After a couple of hours I left the tour early and headed back to the hostel.
The rest of the day was just chilling out and searching for food. Neither of which is too exciting to blog about.
I actually don’t have anything planned for my last day in San Cristobal tomorrow.
I told myself before the trip started that I would let the people I meet guide the direction of my trip as far as what to see and do.
Unfortunately, here in San Cristobal I haven’t really connected with the few people staying here in the hostel so I’ve pretty much been on my own wandering a small town.
No worries though. It’s a vacation. It’s good to have days where I do absolutely nothing.
Besides Cuba is around the corner and I’m sure there’s great adventures awaiting me there…
