Welcome Back to Uxmal!

netmex001I’m back in Mexico, and feeling amazing! I’m so happy that I’m on this journey and able to share it with you as I experience this wonderful adventure. I returned to Uxmal today. The name Uxmal means ‘thrice-built’ in the Mayan language. I’m learning more about the Mayan Ruins and the culture of this ancient city.

This is my second trip here, and although this is a popular tourist destination, I was drawn into the mayan civilization and had to return. I look back at myself as a teenager and remember dreading history class, but I realized it was due to the type of misguided history we were learning in school. Once I began college, my desire to travel and educate myself on my own terms became intense. Wanderlust has truly taken over, and I feel it leading me all over the world.  Anyhow, first thing’s first, and that is lunch!

There’s entirely too many things to experience on this planet, and cuisine is one of them. There is absolutely nothing like authentic Mexican food, and let’s face it, Mexican-American food is not the same. These were the best chicken tacos and tortilla chips I’ve ever eaten!
