Here we go! Chichen Itza tour! The tour is about the whole day. Mga 7 to 7 ang ganap. Full availment! Aside from Chichen Itza, you will also see the city center and the underground river nila.

Ewan ko anong trip ni V, at naisipan picturan toh. photo L1040385_zps11c32e80.jpg

The terrain of Mexico is very very flat. Waley mga pinatubo levels. And dry. Even their shrubs medyo mababa pati mga puno. Here is a photo of the AGAVE, dyan galing yung mga nagpapasakit ng ulo nyo the next day sa gimik.. TEQUILA! photo L1040389_zps484a723a.jpg photo L1040391_zpsbcd5c5ed.jpg I like the tour guide. Aliw sya. Chichen Itza was built by the Mayans. I think kilala nyo sila dahil sila yung nagchizmiz na may end of the world daw nung Dec. 21, 2012. Actually the tour guide cleared that na assuming daw kasi tayo. D naman sinabing end, start of a new cycle lang daw. Because Mayans believed in cycles. photo L1040398_zpsba950659.jpg

 

GWIYOMI! choz! very Korean ang look ko ditey. Choz! When you go to the sites, natanong ko so… “where are the Mayans? Vanishing point na ba ang drama nila?” The tourguide explained that the Mayans are still around, contrary to the stories na waley na sila. They still speak their language. Pero not like before na sama sama sila sa mga pumypyramid nilang structures. Will explain more about their history ditey sa vlag. photo 2013-04-09001428_zpsc0191b77.jpg

 

When you do the tour… make sure may hat kayo! D makatao ang init! photo 2013-04-09001520_zps0dfab028.jpg

 

Madami pang ganap! read more!

 

Nakisilong… photo 2013-04-09001606_zpsff3e8396.jpg

 

Way back, when the Mayans built yung mga areas nila. Wala pang machinery, actually ang chika ni tour guide… The Mayans are one of the most advanced na civilization. They “invented” 0. A number representing nothing, and of course their Mayan Calendar. They relied on the stars for most of their work and life. They worship the stars and dun din nila nakikita best days and times para sa mga buhay buhay nila- when to construct, when to harvest, etc. Commercial break yung photo… bongga yung mga ceramics nila. photo 2013-04-09002129_zps85cd9919.jpg

 

I regret not buying one for the house. HULAZE. By the way, dito na kayo umavail ng pasalubongs, we checked sa mall. Masmahal sila. They also accept US dollars if ayaw mo magpalit. 1 USd is to 10 or 11 ang palitan sa ganitech. photo 2013-04-09002137_zps12da8334.jpg

 

ETO NA ANG MAYAN DYOSA! choz! So back to bakit nawaley sila, kasi eventually their cities nagpasiklaban (uso na pala yun noh? haha), they were competing who can built bigger and better structures. Structures, required manpower and trees. So ayun, najubos nila yung trees nila. And as nachika ko kanina, their land is flat and dry, no rivers around, so mahirap magplantation ganap. Because of survival, iniwan nila yung cities nila coz kahit gaano kabongga they all need to eat and waley na foodams dun. photo I31B9017_zpsa2195280.jpgAll of the structures were made ng walang machines. So hirap at pagod talaga yan. photo I31B9018_zpse17dab29.jpg

 

I’m sure gulat si V after reading this kung bakit knowsline ko ang history, eh habang nageexplain si tourguide..best in kodakan kami. Haha! HOY D BIRO MAKUHA ANG PERFECT SHOT NOH! Mukhang once lang ako makakapunta dito.. sulitin na! photo I31B9021_zps9d5870ca.jpg

 

Take turns, Milan naman kukunan ko! photo I31B9022_zps0d774fca.jpg

Chichen Itza is one of the largest Mayan cities. And actually, they have a portion where they are digging pa. Marami pa daw masisight, but it will take time and money from their government. photo 2013-04-09003138_zpsa58d4a71.jpg

 

They made these paandars as religious sites and mansions of their rulers. parang d ko naman bet tumira ditey. Ang haba ng aakyatin. haha! photo I31B9038_zps55c73cf8.jpgSorry, d ako makapili anong masbet ko ipost.. pareho nalang. haha! photo I31B9040_zpsb9535bcb.jpg

This part is called COLUMNS IN THE TEMPLE OF A THOUSAND WARRIORS photo 2013-04-09004545_zps151873ec.jpg

 

When they were still living here, they had an extensive roof system daw. Eto nalang natira na nakikita natin ngayon… photo 2013-04-09004551_zpsb5e3fac0.jpg

 

Hassle mag taguan dito… haha! photo 2013-04-09004603_zpsf695fdbc.jpg

They have a big open area wherein they identified as ball courts. In fair, masports pala sila.
 photo I31B9050_zps249837ef.jpg

You can’t go up the structures na. Dati daw pwede, sayang d ko naabutan. But to preserve the place, pinagbawal na. photo I31B9051_zps568d1bfd.jpg

 

Jenni Epperson would love the platuplatuhan ditey! photo L1040409_zps37e309cd.jpg

You won’t get lost in the place. Because wide open naman sya, and super flat. So keri lang humiwalay sa group. Just be sure you know your meeting time. photo 2013-04-09005058_zps636bd78f.jpg

OO, hindi pako tapos! haha! Ok more about the Mayans. Their history is mainly divided into 3 segments, preclassis, classic and postclassic. During the preclassic, yan yung pasimula palang sila mga 2600 BC. OLD AGE! choz! photo I31B9072_zpsbe1f67f0.jpg

 

Eto ang classic. choz! haha! Masingit lang talaga noh? HOY! Mahirap kaya magbra top sa gitna ng mga tourista. Susulitin ko ang photos! haha! photo L1040419_zps39edb024.jpg

The classic period ang boom nila. Dun yung mga paandaran ng structures and eto yung parang peak nila. Eto yung URBANISM na tinatwag where they built empires and cities.
 photo I31B9080_zpse3a3eee8.jpg

Kunwari d ko alam ha… choz! photo L1040421_zps88d70641.jpg

Forever Batman and Robin. photo I31B9097_zps0605b885.jpg

 

Post classic was when they started abandoning the areas. Matagal yan ha, hindi naman overnight. And eventually, nakielam na naman ang kamaganak ni Magellan and conquered the Yucatan. photo I31B9101_zpsaedb40d5.jpg photo I31B9104_zpsa75d61e5.jpgNakakatakot naman yung mga dolls. AFRAIDY ROACH! photo L1040424_zps30959359.jpg

So mahirap sumilong. Flat and bare… photo 2013-04-09011307-1_zps84e3f2ff.jpgEto yung mga panahon na, bilis picturan mo na ako. Habang hindi pa hulaze ang buhok ko. 5am ako nagising para magblowdry noh! photo L1040447_zps0a4c3c46.jpg photo L1040452_zpsdc6a93fb.jpgSa dami kong photos, kahit ako nauubusan na ng sasabihin. haha! photo L1040456_zps1a7e87de.jpgWag nyo nang tangkain mag heels. Nareasearch ko yung area before hand. haha! Greek ruins nga nakatiil ako, pero wag na ditey. Dead kuko na naman ang labas.
