Day 3

It was raining (sprinkling) when we got up this morning. We walked in the rain to get some coffee at Oxxos and some great tacos at a local stand. The rain finally stopped about 10:00AM so we caught a van at 11:30 and went to the Ruins. It sprinkled off and on the entire time we were there. Enough at times that we would take cover, but no real problem. There was a haze most of the afternoon and it shows up in most of the photos.

I took photos of some of the info boards for the different structures. There is a lot of info available on the link in the last post. I don't have much narrative for the photos I have. Lazy!!! I am still amazed at the structures these folks were building over 2,000 years ago!

Of the different ruins I have been to in Mexico, I definitely would put the Palenque Ruins on the must see list, just after the Pyramid of the Sun north of Mexico City. I would also have the world's largest pyramid located east of Mexico City near Puebla on that list.
