Today we left at 9am to catch a coach to Chichen Itza, which luckily was very comfortable.
Although we already knew a bit about Chichen Itza, we were amazed by the shear size of the site and the ruins themselves. However, we had a fantastic guide and learnt a lot, and we didn´t realise that the majority had been blasted by looters looking for gold and also that the majority of sites lie undiscovered in the surrounding bush land.
The following bus to Merida was not so pleasant for the 2 of us, as someone had taken the seats we were meant to have, so we were stuck right at the back next to the engine blowing hot air on us and a flapping loo door, and with no a/c and water we found it most uncomfortable. However a Mexican man sitting near us drew an amusing portrait of us on a paper napkin, which at least made us smile.
We arrived in Merida and checked in to our next hostel, which is quite nice but had no a/c or fan so the temperature was pretty unbearable. After a quick shower we all headed off to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant in the square, and the atmosphere was really lively and Sarah even joined in some salsa dancing on the streets!
