Just 300km, but a long way to go on Mexican roads. It took us about 9hours to finally arrive at the apartment in Cancun. But that’s not only because of the roads, we also stopped at Chichen Itzá. A pretty awesome Mayan ruin. By now there is only about 1% left/discovered from the approximately 20.000 square meters wide area. Once again we took the tour and weren’t disappointed.
The guide introduced us in some great things the Maya’s did at this place. The most remarkable is the serpent which seems to crawl down the pyramid four times a year. When the Sun or the Moon is in the right angle, the light seems to form a serpent which is slowly crawling down the edge of the pyramid. The whole process takes about 45 minutes. Sadly its only taking place at the 21th April and 22th September.
