We took a bus tour service to Chichenitza.
|Don't forget which bus you need to get back on!|
It was a very delightful bus trip, full service! I could get used to these full service trips!
I think we picked a perfect day to go as the weather on the coast was blowing up to 50 knots with rain and inland it was cloudy, cool and breezy.
We had a guide that walked with us all around the inner city, it was pretty interesting.
|Wow, not sure what he was "splaining" here but it must have been good!|
|You can no longer climb to the top|
|Sweet older woman selling napkins|
|We took a short hike to the older ruins as well, this was an observatory|
|It was pretty much all the beer you could drink until the next stop!|
When we got back on the bus they handed us a cold, wet hand towel and an icy cold beer!
The second stop on the trip was a Mexican buffet lunch at a restaurant in an old colonial city. Very pretty town and very yummy food, I ate so much I did not need dinner. Many of the building here where built by re purposing the stones from the Mayan ruins.
|Flowers worn on the left means this woman is married|
|Really?! In Mexico|
I saw a real stop light with the pedestrian signal. I think this is the first one I have ever seen in Mexico. I asked the guide about it. He said that people respect the sign.
The third stop on the tour was a cenote. It was really not a very good cenote as it was in a city and it looked polluted. I would not have swam in it. It was interesting and apparently it is a sacred site.
|I hope they did not throw virgins into this cenote|
