January, 2012 - CHETUMAL, MX

We bus down to Chetumal, the capital of the State of Quintana Roo.  It is a port city on a shallow bay that provides speed boat passage to Belize.  The main point of interest for us was the Museo de la Cultura Maya.  We are only there for less then 24 hours then we are off to San Pedro, Belize.

We forgot all three of our cameras on the boat.  So we now own four!!!

Sculpture outside the Market, in the main square.

The Mayan social pyramid.

Mayan fresco.

God of the underworld, who greets you as you pass to the next life.  Cheerful eh?

Our room was clean and had a working air conditioner, that sounded like a truck using it's Jake Brake.  the conctete box spring provided "firm" support.

Sandra & Steve share a wake up coffee at our hotel.

Steve checks out the meat at the market.
