Chichen Itza would be the first of the great and grand archaeological sites we would visit in Mexico. Leaving from Merida and still recovering from our first installment of food poisoning, we walked the baking grid like streets to find the correct bus terminal. There was something so off putting about booking an overpriced tour to Chichen Itza, if Lonely Planet told us we could get there on our own we would. And that is how Chichen Itza became our first big archaeological stop.
