Visiting Ruins – From Mexico City to Cancun (09)

2010-01-02 Tulum

离开奇琴伊察(Chichen Itza)后车子继续东行,兩个小时后我们抵达濒临加勒比海的图伦(Tulum)。

图伦古城遗址位于坎昆(Cancun)南面,距离130公里,是玛雅人建筑的唯一海滨古城。
图伦属于后玛雅(Late-Maya)文明的古城,大约在公元1200年达到鼎盛时期。

不像其他的玛雅古城,图伦没有高耸的金字塔。古城建在滨海悬崖峭壁之上,傲视加勒比海的碧水蓝天,俯瞰细浪拍打洁白的沙滩。近几十年来,大量游客涌入,图伦已经成为一个热门的旅游之地,古城遗址也不再安静。

进了园区,满眼皆是断壁残垣。

Mr and Mrs SP are a couple I have known since 2004. Mr SP informed me recently that his mother-in-law may well have suffered a mini-stroke. 10 more words

AUD$35. I pulled this one out after having left it pick up a bit of age. I had hoped for some character development, but I feel that its rate of progression suggests this is a 2-3 year drinking wine. 70 more words
