Mexico: Chichen Itza

My what a LONG drive it was to Chichen Itza from Cancun!

Almost 3 hrs, 2 separate toll booths (each way), and not much for sightseeing along the drive.
I didn't realize rental cars now have USB jacks for iPods. Oh how I wish we had brought one!

Below are my pics from a regular point-and-shoot.
I start my photography class next week!
The pictures do represent the overcast/gloomy weather.
It was still slightly humid and around 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

My photo vs. professional photo (below)

Obviously, it did not look like the picture as it was all blocked off.

Dressed like an American tourist aren't I?
I know, I know, that bag is hideous! It might need to be upgraded soon.
Hiking shoes, Lululemon Speed Shorts, and a loose top.
A girl's gotta stay comfortable!

I couldn't stand how there were merchants hawking everything they could INSIDE the ruins area. We paid an entrance fee to be bombarded buy merchandise and catcalls left and right. I did like the colorful hammocks though.
Happy to be in Mexico!
Did the ancient Inca Mayans play tic tac toe? Or give kisses and hugs "XOXO"?

Street Tacos for $1 USD! This or the fruit we bought from another street cart could have been the culprits for T's parasites!
