Chichen Itza (Country Mexico, Area Yucatan, City Chichen Itza)
Anne & Ben's Trip Report
Well, we've had a few fun adventures since I wrote to you last. After spending a few relaxing days on the beach we went to Chichen Itza, a famous Mayan Ruins in Mexico. It was really beautiful and fairly well preserved, with a huge pyramid that people used to be able to climb. Unfortunately a few months ago a woman fell down it, so it is closed off now. There were some really beautiful carvings and columns and buildings. But, it was so touristy, a tour bus haven, and people trying to sell you stuff constantly. So much
stuff for $1, one guy said his stuff was cheaper than Walmart. Funny, but a little sad too. I'm still glad that we went and saw it.
