Vamos a Tulum
Yesterday we went to see the Mayan ruins at Tulum. It took about thirty minutes by bus, and was pretty spectacular. They were the first ruins we’ve visited, not counting the small temple on a nearby inlet.
My husband had a theory that all the former Mayan residents have been reincarnated as iguanas, because there were SO MANY of them. Ruby would not have liked it–she has a strong objection to lizards. Personally, I think they’re pretty cool.
You can totally see why the Mayans built a city here. It was an important trade port, but it was also a gorgeous stone city towering above the cerulean sea.
The one disappointing thing about Tulum was that you can’t climb any of the ruins like you can at some of the other sites. Of course I understand about wanting to protect the archeological integrity of the place. This was the only building people could touch and get close to.
Well, seems I’ve got the technical difficulties resolved for now. Until tomorrow…
