Chichenitza, Saltilio, Montrrey, Mexico city, Sao Paulo

Second ancient city, called Chichenitza, that i visited during my stay in Riviera Maya in Mexico amazed me. Huge piramides from Mayan age has been remaining in those place since more then 20 centuries. Chichen Itza was a major regional focal point in the northern Maya country from the Late Classic to the early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style. Mayan people represent a totally different culture than Mexican. They even have their own language. Faces of mayan people are totally different than Mexican one. Edicia discribed them as "not as pretty as mexican". Yesss this is true, they are kind of weird. In Poland we say that beauty is a metter of taste ...

Travelling is people that you meet. In Playa del Carmen we have met plenty of them, but not only people in our age. The most impressive was a group of 6 guys from Mexico City, with whome we have spent the last day on the beach. However the age difference was huge, cause they were around 35-60 years old, we have found a common language. Since they were involved in some kind of ´book business´ they knew a lot about international literature and... what impressed me mostly was the fact that they have read all of the Ryszard Kapuscinski´s books and they loved them. They even met him personally during some kind of bookfair in MexCity. It is amazing how small the word is and people from the different hemisphere of the earth have the same authorities. Actually the last day in Playa del Carmen was the best ever. Besides the creative conversations, we have made a plenty of pictures with a friend who is involved in photography and has a big bazoooki camera hahaha. Those pictures will for sure remind me and Edy a wonderful reunion after 7 years of not seeing eachother.

Last weekend in Saltilio - the city in northern Mexico were Edicia´s family lives was really busy. Besides sightseeing in Saltilio and Montrrey we enjoyed the company of Edy´s friend´s and her brothers. Poor Edy had to work today and i am enjoying the big Mexico city! The clubs in Mexico are great. Live rock music, relaxed ambience, happy people, various kind of tequila drinks...

The way back to Brazil was kind of hectic. I had hard time trying to catch a plane from mexico city to sao paulo. I was travelling for 48 hours already and when i finally was supposed to get into the plane, the mexican airlines cancelled the flight... I was soooo tired and pissed off. My backpack was lost for couple of hours, i was wearing shorts and a t-shirt so i was freezing. Finally everything ended up just perfect, Mexicana paid a nice nice hotel and i could rest for couple of hours.

On wednesday i reached sao paulo. Sampa is the place where i could possibly live one day. It was cool to meet my friends again. since kasias mother is in the town, i am staying with other friends in downtown. I also enjoy the place, especially cause the companion is just perfect. brazilians whith whom i am staying are having an awesome appartment on the 13th floor with a great view.

On monday Poland. Yeahhhh i miss my family and friends but i am sure it will be hard to leave this beautiful country and first of all people that were around me during my trip...
One day i will come back!!!
