Very very sad end of our beautiful trip. We won’t get to Panama. We are back in Europe.
More and more people is asking how is our Hanna: if healthy? if happy? Here you are: if only Hanna would be able to write, she would give you some insights about our trip.
Of course not visiting all the places we planned, and of course much later than we planned – we are leaving Mexico. Surprisingly, without any problem on the Guatemalan border!!
Cool, because situated between hills in a small valley. Cool, because very walkable and likable with all the small cafes (first time we felt Berlin’s atmoshpere). Cool, because of all the Maya’s culture in the city.
And each of the villages has its own clothing, language, beliefs and customs. And maybe even 1/3 of the people don’t speak Spanish! And from those jungles came the rebel movement of Zapatista, which is fighting for a democratic change of indigenous rights. Chiapas: an amazing state of Mexico.
Already arriving to the camping place, close to the Palenque ruins, gave a very tropical feeling: dipped in the jungle small road to small wooden cabanas, bustling with “King of the jungle” song, wet and hot morning just waiting for exploring the ruins.
Going more east, we checked the capital of the peninsula, another town and a small fishermen village. What to say, between chickens, turkeys and dogs – we all had the most of fun.
I’m seriously wondering how did Chichen Itza make it to be between new seven wonders of the world. More tourists and souvenirs than wonders!
So how many degrees do you have in Europe right now? Don’t you also feel like jumping to the blue eye of underwater cenote?
Probably the most touristic Maya ruins around but still: just imagine how happy those Maya must have been to wake up and have such a view in the morning!?
Since the moment Hanna first time saw a spider monkey we knew that we have to find more of them and show her that they are happy out there, between the trees, and taking one home is maybe not the best idea.
What to do in the Maya village on the Day of the Dead? You follow your daughter and get invited for a traditional dinner!
San Angel, 800-people Maya community. One of the places where organisation Kanche is supporting the activities of indigenous people.
Seems like heaven, from those folders of travel agencies. But on the pictures you don’t see one important issues: mosquitoes!!
And what to eat in Pozoleria? Pozole, of course.
To become a happy owner of the car in Mexico you must go through four steps: finding a proper car, checking if it is really a proper car, getting money to buy this car, registering the car. And each of those steps can be a fight – especially if you are a foreigner.
At first hurricane and then it can be only stronger? That was kind of our beginning in Mexico.
We are sending kisses to the whole world from Cancun in Mexico! Still sleepy, tired and not very conscious that we are really here.
Very soon the second daughter will join our family. New year, new baby and… we are starting to plan our new next trip. Ladies and gentleman, in 2011 we will travel to…
