We are nearing the end of this Mexican journey. We’ve seen a ton, made new friends, developed new tastes and learned a lot.
I’m pretty wiped out tonight. Perhaps in the morning I will write a bit more, but tonight, just a few photos and the quote that indicates transitioning back into the US is starting to happen in our American chain hotel here in Cancun:
“Mom, is it okay for me to flush toilet paper yet?”
These are from Coba. I drove from Merida to Coba to Tulum to Cancun today. I’m glad we did Uxmal and other Ruta Puuc sites because they were heads and shoulders above these in terms of interest and detail. It was delightful to ride around Coba on bikes, and the setting of Tulum is gorgeous, but there is just a lot more at the other sites and the almost cruise-ship port vibe of the way into Tulum (not the site itself, which is, I repeat, lovely and well-done) is really off-putting.
