Uxmal is elegant and nearby Kabah has a great wall of masks

I think I stayed in El Panchan. I nearly punched out a few drunk clownpants folks for having a loud party into the AM. i moved to a hotel in Palenque since I was headed to the Guatemalan border early in the AM.

I stayed in El Panchan one night, and then moved to the town, more annoyed by the people than I've ever been in my life. I remember seeing a filthy German kid there, probably four years old, with lice-infested dreadlocks. His mother, equally filthy and dreadlocked, was out of her head on 'shrooms in the middle of the afternoon and ignoring him as he wandered the campground.

I made it out to Uxmal right as they opened the site in the morning, and I think there were only 6 or 7 people there total for about an hour. Then the tour buses started to show up.

That hour was great.

No tour buses when I was there, or anywhere along the Ruta Puuc. Mostly we were by ourselves. There are some good things about being old, or rather about having been young a long time ago.

Yeah. Mexico used to be great. They've added 100,000,000 of their 130,000,000 people in your lifetime, Vinny.

I went to Mexico maybe 30 times. Three times this year. In fact, I was in Tulum just yesterday and now I'm posting from playa.

I am surprised how many of you found driving in Merida difficult. I went there last July and this July, drove around. Easy Peasy. This trip I am taxing everywhere because they run out of rental cars in Cancun airport :lol: And I booked! Fuckers tried to tell me that I mixed up dates, then they admitted they run out of cars. Heh! I went around to other companies that had booths on the airport ant they were sold out too.

I’m a bit late to the party, but enjoy, misanthrope! I loved Yucatán, and would go back in a heartbeat.

I'm working on the logistics of it all now. It sounds amazing.
