    ... a mayan town with a really long history that spanded the pre-classic, classic and post-classic. It is older than Chichén Itzá, which is post-classic, and a lot less touristy. We started by looking at some stallas, which are big slates of engraved rock. The myans believed that everything around them was alive, including the buildings.

    ... you a looking for something, then moving forward when the queue moves, then subtly inserting yourself into the queue. It's quite an art-form, clearly. With all of these crowds I was worried that the ruins would not be as magical as I had hoped. I needn't have worried - the magnificent Palenque surpassed all of my preconceptions. Having already seen the archeological sites at Teotihuacan, Monte Alban and Mitla I had a bit of an idea of what we ...
