As we are walking along, our guide Saul explains how the land around the Cenote Maya is sacred to the Mayan people. We are heading to get a blessing from the local Shaman before we can enter the Cenote area….

We raise our hands in celebration.
After the ceremony, we meet a young Mayan man dressed in warrior attire of old, and a woman in a local Mayan dress worn today. Saul cracks us up with this pose…
as we head toward the Cenote. I have chills….
