Lots of people don´t come today to Chichen Itza......some because they don´t feel well, but many because they love Merida so much that they want to stay there and shop. It is a big modern (sort-of) city with lots of Spanish Colonial architechture. It has traffic almost as bad as Mexico City, and the noise and crowds of people on the streets is hard for me to manage. Still, our new friends go with us out to get sherbert in local fruit flavours, and we have some fun people watching and shopping. Steve and I buy outfits in the traditional Mayan style. We listen to more music in one of the sqares after dark. The ruins in Chichen Itza are big and am interesting as we had hoped. Still, after the last 7 days, we are almost "pyramidded out" as one of our new friends put it. We exchange addresses and promise to send pictures.
