Up early a cup of coffee and a couple rolls I get checked out of my room and head to the ADO bus station about a block away, to get on my bus to Chichen Itza it is a first class bus so I have a reserved seat and it is off to one of the 7 wonders of the world and the last one for me to see. A three hour bus ride gets me to the entrance where I get a taxi to take me to my hotel in Piste, I get to hotel at about 12pm but find out there is a time change and it is only 11:00AM but was able to get checked into my room early always nice when traveling, nice room king sized bed with a balcony and a rocking chair. I drop my luggage and it is off to explore my new area, Piste is not a very large town a population of about 6,000 people, and very laid back compared to Cancun, as I am out on my walk I pass a street side restaurant where a lady was cooking chicken on the grill and a piece jump off the grill and tried to attack me so I had to eat it, lol. then it was off to check out the entry for Chichen Itza a walk of about 1km cost is 216 peso to get in and it opens at 8:00 so will be there at that time to go in so now back to hotel where I meet the manger a real friendly lady been in Mexico 40 years originally from Italy, she set up a guided tour for me and another couple from Australia for the next morning. A bit of down time, a swim in the pool a beer while rocking in my chair, then to dinner at the hotel had a great dish of pulled pork cooked in underground pit, wow what a flavor a couple beers and another walk about the town and bed calling it a day. Tomorrow Chichen Itza
