Long ago, 1991, and far away in the Yucatan, Mexico
The archaeological sites in the Yucatan that we visited were quite impressive from all perspectives. That includes the narrow tunnel to get to the top of a pyramid in Chichén Itzá that the guide said once in you can’t turn around ! Ha, watch me go. Between that adventure, losing the only key we had to the rental car while swimming at Xel-Há Tulum, having a taxi driver run into our rental car and finally having a camera stolen it was still a most inspiring trip.
Tulum, Uxmal, Cobá, Labná, Templo de los Falos at Uxmal, Chichén Itzá, jungle treks, cenotes, restaurants all good and some better with excellent food at a Club Med then close to Chichén Itzá.
The weather was hot, hot and hot as well as humid but still well worth the visit.
I created two large oils on my return but did not do much on site work while there. Lots of photographs taken before the camera thief struck.
