... not letting people through unless they gave them money. The locals were angry because of the person who had been voted into government to represent them was not who they had voted for.

But hey, it was worth it: We got to the main area where there were amazing pyramids, temples and structures. Unfortunately, we were pressed for time: With only an hour or so until the site closed, we only had a chance to see some of the main sites, and not to hike out to ...
