Merida, part 2. Dzibilchaktun

As a huge lovers of ruins and history and old stones we couldn't possibly passed on an opportunity to visit the ruins. Dzibilchaktun was a marvel and we enjoyed the ruins of the old city so much. It added a lot that we were allowed to almost fully interact with the zone, climb up, sit on the stones and such. Too bad the cenote was closed but when it's opened we'll make sure to visit again. The place says it all really, I loved it SO much. I found it most curious that it was an actual living vibrant and kinda big city years back, ot a religious place, it was a place where people flocked to live their lives. Very fascinating! I chose a loose dress and a polo. It's very comfortable to wear, has minimal impact of local weather (if it's hotter I have move coverage but generally won't feel hot since the fit is loose; if it's colder I have longer sleeves and a tiny bit of layering. a win-win). The whole outfit looks pretty and I loved the mix. I was wearing:

Viva Mexico!

15-16th of September is the time when the whole Mexico celebrates. It's the Mexican Independence Day. Since Ada Maria is Mexican and we live here, we couldn't pass on the opportunity to join the celebration. We danced, sang and listened to the music on the central square of Cancun and couldn't pass on the opportunity to eat our full with churros (sorry marquesitas, you're too heavy). I have to admit, even though we were already sleeping by the time of fireworks it was a memorable evening for us (and yes we didn't have it too easy to wake the next day). I was wearing: Labyrinth skit Converse shoes c/o Nordgreen watch Uniqlo Chopper top   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

Merida, p1

Our first trip around Mexico as residents and as parents. I was so excited and happy to just to do it, it didn't really mean much to me how much I will be able to see and explore. We ended up spending three very wonderful days in Merida and today I want to share with you the first of them. I know it might be confusing because I have just posted about Valladolid getaway before but actually these Merida moments took place two weeks earlier. I've just had too many photos to sort and been a bit lazy here and there. So here goes the first day. We wanted to visit the far off museum right away because I day was a day of arrival which is broken anyway. It's called Mayan World museum and it hold the largest exhibition on the history of Maya. We were super curious and motivated to visit it because we live around Maya and our curiosity is very high. The museum is amazing and totally worth your time. Bonus points from us because it held a temporary cycling exhibit. My cycling heart l
