I take pictures, News from another star

The pictures below were taken during the day trip to the great Chichen Itza, which was preceded by visiting the historical city of Valladolid and the natural sink hole Cenote Ik-kil.

Some points taken/at least I remember about that day:

1) A funny bus tour guide with a really loud crackling voice – I couldn’t sleep at all on the way there but it’s ok since he was funny anyway;

2) We were called the Group 15 from the Bus 15;

3) The Yucatan peninsula was originally under the ocean (!) and the region’s limestone foundation is fossilised coral beds and ocean floor. There are no above ground rivers in this area, all of the ground water sinks through the porous limestone and travels to the sea in underground rivers. Parts of the limestone weakened over time and collapsed, leaving sinkholes filled with water – that’s a cenote. So we didn’t spend too much time at cenote Ik-kil, since Kiki was pretty paranoid about it being collapsed. Haha;

4) My Nikon FM10 fought against the nasty heat, dust and wind of the Chichen Itza and lost the battle. Anyone knows how to fix the revolver without involving at least NOK 3000?

5) There was, of course, a GI Joe photo session for Kiki, which was more interesting for some people to look at rather than staring at the pyramid all the time;

6) We met the family of Satan. As you see from the pictures, they seem happy and giggling all the time.

7) We were rockstars. See the last picture with the De Los Dorados bottle. We (actually Fabien did and we still owe him) paid 200 MXN for the bottle. I think that’s a pretty smart marketing. Who doesn’t love to be featured on a tequila bottle? Tell me;

8) I didn’t skip dinner that day (this is an internal joke, don’t bother please).
