7 Orejas, which means seven ears is my new home for the next two weeks. It is a small hostel with colonial charm, bright colors, sun streaming through every window and accents of charm in every corner. It is about a 10 minute walk to town, so it doesn't see a lot of traffic. People that stay here are not looking for a late night party. And because it is small, I know everyone who works here, they know me by name and I get to speak Spanish often. Muy tranquillo...as in, very calm and low-key. It's a nice change after Casa Jaguar.
The truth of the matter is that I greatly enjoy trying different ways of living here. I plan to leave here the morning of the 22nd and stay one night in a hostel more downtown before taking off the following morning for San Marcos La Laguna...bidding Xela adios...or perhaps ciao!
