Mexico journey-Chichén Itzá

After 3 days stayed in Mexico city ans 1 days for the rest at our hotel in Cancun, we headed to Chichén Itzá at 7 in the morning. neither of us may drive, so we have to go with tour, and of course, I hate the tour!
After 3 hours in the bus, here we are in Chichén Itzá, it is totally different from what was in my mind, I thought that should be a rural place and hardly can see a person, finally it turn I was totally wrong. Actually it is a encircle park, The number of people over there makes me feel a little bite back to China. In our way headed to the center, I was more attractive by the handmade souvenir at sidewalk.
We reached the center a few minutes later. I was very impressed by the pyramids even I never have any interest for the history or archaeology, impressed by how Mayas built the giant thing long long time ago and use a punch of trick, as the equinox.

The whole gang moved to Valladolid for a very traditional lunch, meanwhile I took a nap. After all I am not used to get up early, especially 7 in the morning. 

 The beautiful fountain next to our restaurant.

 After the lunch, I was extremely exhausted, honesty I can barely move. But when I arrived Il Cenote, I was speakless, even though I saw this place a thousand time from the photos, it's amazing to see this with my own eyes. Two little Indians girls imitated my move and play model in the photo, I saw two bloggers in the future.

Mexico city journey-day 3

Time go fast at Mexico, it's already my last day here. We decided spend the morning at Zocalo and the whole Centro historico. But the thing did not going well, however I ate the best tacos in the planet.
The church is huge, above all, beautiful, with all the incredible delicacy carving, I was impressed, but neither of us a religion fan, so we just did a tour outside.

 This s very tourism spot, so you can find all the american chain store as you want, including McDonald or H&M.
This place is not attractive for me as St-Angel, so we just did a fast tour and headed to Condesa. I hear most of wealthy people were living here in this area once before an earthquake ruined everything, that is why they moved to Polanco and live until today, please tell me if is true. However this a very beautiful ,charming place.
