Where's Tai?

"And I still haven't found what I'm looking for"

Day 14 Palenque March 14, 2006

Filed under: Travelling — Tai @ 3:12 am

 

Sunday: After 12 hours of bus trip (which really wasnt that bad because I slept well most of the night and with only one military stop).  Arrived in Palenque.  Is a small town in the middle of Chiapas.  After pancakes for breakfast I jumped a collective to Panchan (4 kms from Palenque) which is on the edge of the alenque archeological reserve.  It´s a backpackers haven with 5 different hostel in the jungle.  I stayed in one cabana for 7€ next to the stream and was able to watch the lizards fornicate from my balcony. There were a few howler monkeys hanging around in the trees and lots of insects. 

Went to the Palenque Mayan ruins.  Lots of big Mayan temples and carvings.  It was really hot – had to put on sunscreen 50.  Was good there because I was able to climb all the pyramids here and was on the side of a mountain and so overlooked the countryside.  They use to have huge carved incense holders all thru the site.  The mixed the incense with human blood and then burnt them.
