We docked at Calica, Mexico, today. Jeff and I chose to go to see the ancient ruins at Tulum. We think our tour guide was LDS. It was cool to learn about the descendants of the Nephites and Lamanites. When we learned about their civilization, it was apparent how far they had fallen. They were definitely riding the pride part of the pride cycle when their civilization was destroyed.
Jeffrey bought me a pendant engraved with "Mimi" in the Mayan pictographs on it. :)
It was really cool to walk where Lamanites and Nephites once walked. The buildings were built on a cliff overlooking the ocean with a beach at the bottom. It was utterly beautiful. We really had an enjoyable day walking about the ruins, learning more about the history, and seeing the largest iguanas we have ever seen!
