This is where we received the shaman's blessing to the ancestors before we enter the cenote (entrance to the underworld). Every once in a while you just need to take a moment to appreciate the respect people have for the traditions that came long before them and will continue long after. #traditional#ancestors#mayan#ritual#temple#blessed#mexico#cool
The ruins of Palenque, Mexico, are surrounded by a dense jungle🐒🌴🐍 , you may see the roots of giant trees embracing the rest of what used to be a temple or a house – just the way I imagined legendary Angkor Wat in Cambodia before going there. In reality, Angkor Wat was a bit frustrating – we felt like there were more people than trees there…🦉 Palenque, on the other hand, was not packed at all. While the morning Hours are quite busy, in the late afternoon, there were almost no visitors at all. We've heard of the other Mayan pyramids, on the border of Mexico and Guatemala, lost in the jungle, you may get to only by water - we would really love to go there one day! What archaeological sites can you recommend?
