Weekend in Coba

Coba ruins were beautiful, especially when you reach the top of the only ruins that you can climb. From atop, you could only see Coba forest and its two lakes. Supposedly, the whole site is humongous and to go to the end of the site, you would need to cover 8 km! At least that's what we were told as we wondered if we should rent bicycles. Finally …

The look of terror on Coman's face as he stands petrified, shaking and sweating, clinging to the narrow pyramid steps 100 feet above the earth, frightens me no end. "Sit down," I implore him, "just sit down and you'll be ok!!" But he's frozen, unable to look up or down, and seconds turn to minutes as he clutches the stones for dear life, until he manages to finally take the next step and make it up to where I'm reaching out my hand for him.
