Uxmal

After the nearly overwhelming encounter with 100s of vendors selling crap at Chichen Itza, the beauty and tranquility of Uxmal was a welcome respite.

Though I was greeted by this in the men’s room:

Front and rear views of the Pyramid of the Magician.IMG_20150208_105908 IMG_20150208_110137  That king was a small person so the stairs on the front, or sunrise side, are much shorter than usual.

Lots of birds around there

Or that owl next to him.

And was rewarded with this view:IMG_20150208_123845

And then had to make my descent…IMG_20150208_124717

Unfortunately, this Android pad makes me load each picture individually which takes clicking thru five windows for each one. So here’s a few more, sans captions:
