    ... famous Mayan ruins, Chitzen Itza. Our second day in Valladolid, was what we later called 'Black Friday”, we try to work on a tight budget, hitch hiking, street food, cheap accommodation and paying for as little as possible, not so much on Black Friday.

    ... and I'm happy to have shared an afternoon with them. After a failed attempt at going to a fair (the line of cars was so long we would have waited for hours to get in) a group of us went out dancing, where Allavie transformed from a yogi into the most incredible dancer.
