      Thx, but I don't like to work with people anymore, so tour guide isn't for me.

      The Coba one is the only one that they still allow people to climb, and it is taller than the Chicken Pizza one.  The thing is these pyramids are very steep (Mayans were pretty fit in the ancient time), so it is difficult to come down after the climb.  My guess is some dumbos got injured, and that is why they no longer allow people to climb on the pyramid. 

      To make to clear on what I mean by a clean cenote to swim in, and the one that the Mayans used to dump drunk people in to feed ther gods..

      The first pic is the Mayan Sacrifice cenote, they make people drunk, hit them hard in the head to knock them out (all the skeleton they found in that cenote had head fractures)...and then..dump them into the cenote...no struggle and painless death as people would just grooogrooo into the water! lol

      The second pic is a clean and fresh cenote with fishes in a rainy day.

              Nan,

               

              I am a Canuck from the east coast, who like a lot of the Canucks, spend a lot of time laughing at our southern neighbor.  I guess those TV reality shows don't help much...heehee  Luckily, I work with the most educated portion of the US population everyday, so I can have a balanced view or at least they give me some hopes.

              The 4th of July wasn't my first choice, but Jan-Feb-March are the RRSP/ Year end reporting months,  April-May, kids have school and those are taxation months.  June is the CFA month (my FI is doing his CFA), Aug-Sept-Oct-Nov are the hurricane months.  So July seems to be the ideal month.  My FI and I both have friends who ended up in the US for various reasons, so we picked the 4th of July, because everyone can have that w-e off (and it is an auspicious day according to the Chinese calendar).  Officially, I will sign the papers on the Feb 14, 2011.

                Funnily enough, we Americans laugh at our Northern neighbors quite a bit as well.

                  Cjb,

                   

                  I know!  We have a pretty different system overall.  We are more socialist (Obama is different!), and more diverse (ah oui, we have French Canucks!), overall not very patriotic (except when it comes to hockey) and relatively boring.

                    Every single Canadian I've ever met has been really, super nice. My parents live very close to the Canadian border, and they come over into the States to shop. My only complaint is that y'all don't know how to drive!!

                      Cjb,

                       

                      If you watch Michael Moore's documentary, you would realize Canucks are still very naive and gentle people (some of them still leave their doors unlock all the time!), I guess it has to do with our ultra socialistic system.  I guess in Sweden too, people are not extremely rich, but the quality of life is good.  On the French Canucks side, we have 1 yr of paid mat leave, almost free medicare for everyone, $7/day daycare, university tuition that cost $5000 per year.

                       

                      It is funny, in the mid 90s, US people used to come to Canada and shop!  However, with the way the US economy is going, I think you will see more bad drivers on your side!...LOL

                      The reason we don't drive properly is in some provinces, people can't turn right when the light is RED (now you know why some cars wouldn't turn right, when they should turn right!).  Plus, our population including the polar bears...is only 1/10 of the US population with approx. same land size, so of course there isn't that much traffic.  We have a TV show here called the WORST driver, so I guess you are totally right on our driving skill!
