A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Chichén Itzá, Mexico by TravelPod blogger Endsoftheearth titled “On the Mayan Road” Endsoftheearth’s travel blog entry: “From the hot and steamy humidity of Palenque, and least expecting it, we stepped up on to what was to be the most freezing cold bus on the trip so far. We’d be warned to get on the overnight buses prepared, as each bus company takes pride in having the best air-conditioned 80km/hr bullet running the route. Our goal was to head to the famed Toltec-Maya ruins of Chichén Itzá, although first we would be spending a couple of days each getting acquainted with the Spanish colonial towns of Mérida and Valladolid. Not on the tourist trail, we found these to be worthwhile introductions to Yucatán peninsula and found the people really open to have a chat and give us tips for what to do (granted, their commission to send us to their mate’s hat and hammock factory may have been on their minds more than ours, but what the hey). In Mérida we saw some impressive wall sized murals by the yucateco painter Fernando Castro Pacheco in the Palacio del Gobierno. The paintings depicted the Maya people in a dramatic form: identity, great civilizations, enslavement at the hands of the Spaniards, Christianity, and freedom. Another highlight of Mérida was wandering the huge food market and buying the ingredients for our own hostel-made guacamole – a huge avocado, tortilla chips, limes, coriander and a little habana chilli all
