The holy bath

The Maya indians believes that everyone that takes a bath in this holy, all natural water will live forever. The water is supposed to be very good for the body and soul. The place was 2000 years old.

Land of the Maya Indians

January 28, 2009

After a 3 hours drive from Cancun, we finally reached our destination. The land of the Maya’s was pretty poor and they live very simple life. They do most of there things by hand and doesn’t even have a doctor around. They have a medicine man instead. It was very interesting to see.

Downtown Cancun

January 28, 2009

Cancun is very modern, clean and it was built only 30 years ago, which shows too. There’s loads of clothing stores, big malls, restaurants, bars and nightclubs centered in the area. Cancun feels in general very american. Reminds me a lot of Miami : )

The best dessert I’ve ever had. 8 different ice-creams, melted chocolate and fruits to be dipped in the chocolate.

Mexico

January 28, 2009

We are now in Cancun, Mexico and I must say that this city, is without doubt, my favorite in the Caribbean. The atmosphere is really cool and the city itself is build in such a modern way without loosing the Mexican feeling. And the beach and the colour of this water was impossible to catch on picture. It looks much nicer in reality.

Nassau

January 26, 2009

My expectations on Nassau was huge and it ended up being an big disappointment. All the things you read about this city is not truth. I thought it would be very beautiful and Nassau is known for being the heart of the Caribbean. It was very ugly, dirty, the restaurants looked like shit and it was made only for tourists so you barley saw any real people there.
