Bacalar, el pueblo magico. A wonderful little town with a healing-mud lake and many cenotes :) A great place to relax!

Lazy days in Bacalar... We just got invited to the wedding of the owners of the place where we're staying. Just wonderful! The official start of the holiday season ;)

Palenque - a Maya city only about 2% of which has so far been uncovered, the rest is still 'absorbed into the jungle'. Pretty amazing! What is also quite impressive is that the Mayas believed people were created out of corn... I must say they had some tricky philosophy, right?

The pre-Hispanic city of Teothiuacan (= birthplace of the gods), they built quite some steep pyramids back then :)

Dia de los Muertos - one of the biggest celebrations in Mexico. People go to the cemeteries to honour the deceased and decorate their graves with lively colours. They even invite musicians to come and play a song at the grave. It is not a sad occasion, on the contrary, they celebrate the beginning of a new, better life.

We had a guided tour yesterday in the area of Creel - we saw a cave inhibited by local people, the Elephant rock, lake Arareko and the local Raramuri people, the Curasare waterfall and San Ignacio Mission in the Valley of the Frogs and Mushrooms, very enjoyable!

Mr El Chepe, the only passenger train in Mexico, took us from Los Mochis through the Copper Canyon to a small town called Creel. The views from this slow train from the 1960's are majestic!
