  1. 2012 you say (or the Mayan’s say that is)? Apocolypse = Ouch. I guess I had better get cracking. So much to do and so little time. Thanks for the warning.

  2. Yea, those sunglasses are way huge. At least you would’ve been protected if that lizard decided to spit venom at you!

  3. That lagoon looks amazing. I’ll need to put Chitchen Itza on the wish list :)

  4. Aww… this makes me remember a missed trip to Tulum last year. Let’s just say I now hate American Airlines with a passion.

  5. This is getting featured tomorrow. :)

  6. I felt the heat….even with the big sunglasses

  7. Great video – you packed A LOT in but somehow it all connects …… but what’s with the spelling of Chichen Itza aka Chitchen Itza. Did your mother put you in French Immersion or what ?

  8. 1) Put a strap on those sunglasses and you can use them as ski googles.

    2) I used to have that bird-thingy Transformer! It transformed into something called a “cassette tape”. I think someone stole it from me. Maybe he ran to Mexico and left it there.

  9. Excellent video, I hope to visit the ruins someday too.

  10. Wow. Got shivers just from the view and the music. Beautifully done Lisa. Muy bonito.

  11. That was a great bit. I find your vlogs the most entertaining on the net.

    Cheers from Greg

    PS I love the scale model.

    Well made video

  12. I’ve always wanted to visit Chichen Itza after taking a Mesoamerican art history class. Great video. Now I want to go even more.

  13. “There are those who believe… that life here… began out there. Far across the universe. With tribes of humans… who may have been the forefathers of the egyptians… or the toltecs… or the MAYANS… that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids… or the lost civilizations of Lemuria… or Atlantis… some believe that there may yet be brothers of man… who even now fight to survive… somewhere beyond the heavens.”

    Makes you tingle, eh?

  18. When my wife and I visited Chichen Itza on 9/21/98 we had a very strange experience. The guide told us that a temple was haunted by spirits and I went right in as the group moved on. It was over 100 degrees outside, not a cloud in the sky and absolutely no wind at high noon. There was a stone structure inside and it looked like a chimney going upwards. Suddenly I felt a very cold chill coming down and out of this chimney and asked my wife to come inside and see if she too felt it. She did and ran out. I’ve never concerned myself with spirits before but this was kind of freaky. I was looking for some scientific explaination but then I realized I had not felt the cool air when I first walked inside and there was no wind blowing. So was I being summoned by the ancient mayans. My father told me that our italian name originated in Spain over 500 years ago. Maybe my evil, ignorant ancestors helped destroy that culture!
