On my first trip to Belize and Guatemala in 2002 I got in contact with the fascinating remains and ruins of ancient Mayan culture. It took 4 whole years however, before I would return to the Mayan world in the Caribbean. This time not in Belize, but a few hundred miles further north, on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Just right after the hurricane season in November 2006 I arrived in Cancun for a Conference. After business was done, there was plenty of time to explore parts of the Yucatán.
This trip was also my first major adventure with a digital SLR camera.
