Daytrip to Izamal

Today Jeanette, Chris, Baiba and I took a day trip out to the city of Izamal. The city is located about an hour or so west of Merida. The city is Colonial but it is littered with pre-hispanic (Mayab to be specific) Structures. The largest pyramid the "Kinich Kak Moo" has a 200 square meter base and is 180 meters tall... unfortunately its not really possible to fit the entire thing in to a photo unless you do a fly by, the immensity of the structure is really lost in the photos. I also was able to snag a few photos of some of the indigenous flora and fauna, so all and all it was a good day. Lunch was yummy to!
