A day in Maya land

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!
