greetings. i wanted to post these photos earlier than today, but life got in the way and in the way and then it tripped me. i’m in the process of moving, my kid was in the hospital for several days and now that she’s better it’s my turn to be sick. below are the last few photos from mexico. i will catch up with everyone soon.
a few photos from tulum, mexico.
Tulum (Yucatec: Tulu’um) is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city serving as a major port for Cobá. The ruins are situated on 12-meter (39 ft) tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists.
i can’t believe it’s been over a week since we got back from mexico. it came and went quickly, but we had an awesome time and will definitely go back. i have a lot of photos to share and will be doing so over several posts. the first batch of photos is of the hotel itself that was simply stunning. the service was exceptional.
there are two sides of the hotel, one for families with kids under 17 called hacienda and the other side for families with kids/guests over 17 and guess what they call it? HEAVEN!! that’s right and it was gorgeous. i spent most of my time on the under 17 side, but did scoot over to the heaven side a few times.
last week i met up with my friend kathy, over at the junkdrawblog, her sister and we went for a walk along the columbia trail. her review of it can be found here (shady trail for walking, but watch for the horse poop!). i enjoyed the day away from work and it was nice to get out for a walk and relax. my favorite part of the trail was probably stumbling upon the abandoned building below. not sure what it used to be, but what a great find. we ended our tour with ice cream. yum.
