December 29th, 2010 - Chichen Itza Mayan Ruins (revisited)

See our March 2010 posting for pictures of our first visit to this, the largest, Mayan ruin restored to date. The first time we were part of a tour group. This time we were on our own and saw parts of the site the tour missed.

The older part was pure Myan, before the influence of the Aztecs. James feeds one of the snake gods.

The Sacred Cenote. Some bones were found at the bottom, suggesting that animals and humans were sacrificed here. James and Maria enjoy a short break.

The main temple. the pillars of the administration buildings. I do my "Sampson" impression again, now with a short beard, with the same nil result. Did the Mayans invent X & Os???
