You have to admit, this pyramid is a wonder. How did those Mayans pull this off? By the way, the name of this pyramid is the Chichen Itsa. It was truly amazing. I believe it is undergoing some major renovation right now. I'm proud we got to see it when we did. The tour guide kept telling us "NO! It's not chicken pizza!" "Don't go back to the USA telling everyone you went to see a chicken pizza in beautiful Mexico!!!" He was cute.
This little rainy island is Isla Mujeres. We had the best food and quite an entertaining trip here. It was a 45 minute boat ride from Cancun. We snorkeled, shopped, petted a shark and ate. Our tour guide seemed to think he was the cat's meow. And must've been, I saw a couple of ladies swooning at him when we walked down the streets. I think he'd been there lots, plus he disappeared for quite some time during lunch. Everytime we would split up he'd say, "we need to be back here at this exact time". "REMEMBER, we NEEEEED to be BAAACK HEEERE at THIIIIS EXAAACT TIME, if you get on the WROOOONG BOAT you may go to COOOBAAA, ahhhaaaahaaa. You DON'T want to go to COOOOOBAAA, ahhhaaaahaaa, do YOU?" Those words often still ring in my ears. We didn't want to go to COOOOOBAAAA, ahhhhaaahaa!!!!
This is my favorite picture of the whole trip. My friend was having problems with her eyes. She has a condition where it is very difficult for her to keep her eyes open. Back then, the condition was fairly mild. I asked her to get a picture of me in the ocean. Little did I know at the time she took this, a wave with it's peak, was coming up behind me. She couldn't have done this better if I paid her!! I hope you enjoyed my trip to Cancun.
Ssshhh...I think I hear the crashing of the waves sending my grouchiness away....
