The early departure was a good decision - the site was pretty quiet when we arrived, but hundreds of people were turning up just as we were leaving. Chichen Itza is a pretty stunning site. Similar to Palenque, with a main pyramid that dominates the entire site, but different enough with a combination of mayan and (later-mayan-tribe-whose-name-I-forget) construction.
We left Chichen Itza at about 11.30am, and from then had a couple of hours on the road to Playa Del Carmen, for our final night of the trip
Itīs about 5pm here. Tonight I think there are plans afoot for a nice dinner and few beers or cocktails to finish the trip off in an appropriate way. From tomorrow afternoon weīre at the Maroma (on the coast between here and Cancun) until Tuesday.
Much love, Us.
Ps. What on earth happened in the cricket?!
