    Day 52: WATERFALLS

    ... exhausting! The steps are really steep, narrow and high. Plus it was at least a million degrees. The guide told us that they deliberately made the steps like that so the poorer people had to climb up on their hands and knees to give offerings to the royals. It was also pretty useful as a defence, but the mayans were more into controlling people using religion and fear than war.

    There was a really cute little courtyard on top of the palace and the view from up there ...

    ... Next on the tour was the Groupo de las Cruces (the Cross Group) of temples built by Pakal's son Kan Balam II. The Spaniards thought that magnificent wall carvings in two of the temples here represented the crucifix. In fact they showed corn stalks as the Mayans believed that they were descended from corn. The main Templo de las Cruces is the highest and affords a great view across the whole known city. Copies of the wall carvings that led to the confusion with crosses are ...

Well we escaped and once we were in the parc it was relaxed and calm. The temples and pyramides lay on a hill surrounded by jungle. You can hear the monkeys howling, the ...

    For lunch, we got some fire-grilled chicken from one of the many street vendors selling it, and gamely ate it with our fingers like the locals do. Refreshed and fed, we got back on the bus towards Palenque.

    ... it still has some authentic feel to it. Coffee, eggs etc - breakfast is pretty good!
    Back on the bus it is a further 1 1/2 hour drive through the blue mountain reserve and we push on to Yaxchitlán which is first due to the clouds that spell afternoon rain which we are trying to avoid. Yaxchitlán is renowned for its ornamented building facades, roof combs and impressive stone lintels that depict battles and ceremonial events.
