Mayan Temple Ruins, Kabah, Yucatan, Mexico

Mayan temple ruins Kabah Yucatan

A very hot day in the Yucatán yesterday exploring the remains at Kabah and Uxmal along the “Ruta Puuc,” which is a circle of Mayan ruins surrounding the city of Mérida. We took a tour, because it's the easiest way to get to various sites without renting a car, and we lucked into having a guide who was fairly expert on Mayan symbology–which probably had something to do with him being a Mayan himself. Striking to us Spanish speakers to hear two people speaking to each other for a few moments before we realize that we don't understand a word they're saying. For many of the people here, especially for those from out of the city of Mérida itself, Maya is the first language. We've managed to pick up a few words, including, at Kris' insistence, me learning how to say, “My wife is very beautiful.”
