Back to Valladolid

That picture is not of Valladolid at all – it’s Rio Lagartos but I forgot to put it into the last post.  Here is another one:

So, it was with considerable reluctance that we left Rio Lagartos.  We got a bus or two to Valladolid because the run from Valladolid to Cancun is very quick and easy.  We do like Valladolid anyway so it was there that we spent our last night in Central America.

We got there quite early in the afternoon so decided to take a colletivo out to the Mayan site of Ek Balam.  Now, Ek Balam is quite odd.  There is a cenote nearby which has been developed as some kind of adventure playground or sports centre so there were a lot of tourists there with their kids.  Some of them wandered across to the archaeological site though many did not.

Ek Balam, like so many sites, is dramatically situated.  Brilliant views from the tops of the buildings.  It also has a couple of very (some might say over) restored reliefs.  Oh and at least two lovely ball courts.

Back in Valladolid we had a pleasant meal and, next morning headed to Cancun, the airport, the plane and cold and rainy London town.
