This morning, I picked up Carm and Don at the Luz en Yucatan hotel at 11:00AM and we proceeded to hit the road, taking the route less travelled to reach our destination.
We meandered through pueblos, stopping everywhere and anywhere to take photos of haciendas and local sights and eat fresh tortillas (this is popular) at a tortilleria, where the ladies waiting in line had a chuckle watching us gringos marvel at their little tortilla factory. Of course, the cow in Uayalceh was a highlight as well!
At last we arrived in Mani, had a fabulous lunch and then explored the monastery, which is in the process of being renovated.
On the way back, we took the more direct Mayapan-Acanceh highway making only one more stop in the town of Chumayel to peek into their church (below)
We were back in downtown Merida, at the Luz en Yucatan hotel, by 6 P.M.
