Where I stayed
When we arrived in Valladolid the pavements were all destroyed in order to change some pipes, so we had a real challenge weaving and jumping everywhere while trying to keep our balance with our backpacks. We found the hotel without any problems and went for a traditional Yucatan meal (I think as long as there is chicken, cheese and mole it is traditional!). We did our first clothes wash in the sink and let it all dry on strings in the room. Very classy!!
The following day (26/09), we got up really early (6am) to go to Chichen Itza, the biggest Mayan archaeological site in Yucatan
We were back in Valladolid by the early afternoon for a quick meal and a dip in the pool to cool us down. In the afternoon we visited the town a little bit. Itīs really cute, loads of churches everywhere (all full during mass). The end of the afternoon got really cloudy and suddenly the heavens just opened. We hid in a museum and waited for it to finished, but it just didnīt stop and we were trapped in the museum. The small museum was surrounded by water, the footpaths were submerged and the street was flowing almost like a river. It was a great spectacle tho! We decided to grab a taxi but to get one you had to walk in the floods (with water above your ankles). So I removed my sandals and walked in the floods like the locals (I know girls, eeeeeeeeew, don't want to know what is in there).
