C is for Cenote

A Cenote is a sinkhole which are characteristic of this area of Mexico. There are thousands of them, each and every one unique in its size and appearance. Some of the larger ones are tens of meters wide where as others you are only able to access via a small whole in the ground’s surface. As you make your way down into the sink hole it is impossible not to make a reference to a movie such as Journey to the Center of the Earth as that is really what it feels like.

One of the largest and most amazing cenotes that I have ever had the chance to experience is the cenote Ik kil located just outside the mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. The sheer width and depth of the cenote add to its charm and one of its unique features are the roots of the trees that you can see right in the middle that have grown towards the water. It really does have that WOW factor!

Another awesome cenote experience is actually a tour called Rio Secreto however the difference here is that you actually travel underground through the caverns with a guide. I have never experienced anything like it, there are some parts completely dry and others where you have to swim through to continue on the journey. It is so quiet and tranquil that it really is like being in a different world!

Blogging from A-Z – My personal Challenge for April

So, as I wrote in my first post. I am determined that this is going to be the blog that works, the blog that I remember I have and remember to post in. Whilst randomly looking for an image on google I came across a blogging challenge..

Can you post every day except Sundays during this month?  And to up the bar, can you blog thematically from A to Z?

Could I? Can I? who knows.. but I’ve never been known to back down from a challenge! So, starting from this coming Monday (April 1st) I’ll be blogging on a daily basis and the themes will be in alphabetical order and of course all related to me and my Mexican Life…. Watch This Space!!! My blog is officially #1468 in the blog challenge!!
