Travel through the past south of Mexico / Viaje a través del sur pasado de México

Long time no published. One gets busy living life, hopefully enjoying it rather than writing about it. This post is about a trip I made as a tourist guide with some friends from Colombia, last Dec. Didn't keep me from taking photos. We went through the states of Puebla, Oaxaca, Chiapas, Campeche and Yucatán, around 4,000 km. We visited mostly archeological sites from the native prespanish cultures of Mexico. So much we saw and much more we didn't. Enough to do in one life for a thousand years.
