it is snowing and snowing and snowing. and it's cold. like real winter.
everything is covered in white and all the trees and shrubs have big snowy caps. when the sun comes out and the snow is sparkling it truly feels like a winterwonderland! looks like we'll have a white X-mas!
Ever since I made it to my parents' place I've been busy baking (and eating) X-mas biscuits. Outside it is freezing and it has been snowing for the past days, but in our kitchen it is warm and cosy, and this is where I am spending a lot of time these days, watching the snow fall and enjoying a hot cup of tea. It's good to be home for Christmas!
On my day off I took a bus to Chichen Itza, where the most famous Mayan temple in Mexico is situated. The journey took us through the jungle to an underground waterhole and finally to the big pyramid in Chichen Itza.
It was fascinating to see how perfectly the Mayas modeled this temple to match their beliefs! They were truly extraordinary architects and mathematicians with a quirky mind and a lot of fantasy - imagine what amazing projects they would come up with in today's world!?
Thanks to our fantastic tourguides Edgar and Jorge for this super interesting tour!
this pretty beach has been in front of my nose for the past days but so far I haven't had a chance to really enjoy it! the week has been quite busy, but now it is almost weekend (and no meetings scheduled). so hopefully this will be a good opportunity to explore a little bit of the area....
