A “small” facelift.

You are right. This is the new face of my blog. If you are thinking that you went somewhere else, nope, stay here, this is BeesyBee Fiber’s Blog. I wanted to have a much cleaner look, but the earlier version of this theme didn’t allow me to do much tweaking. Well, maybe it did, but when it comes to HTML or CSS I’m totally an illiterate person. I will continue to play and change things around. So next time I post something I might have a different look again. Or not. We’ll see.

It has been a while since I posted anything. I’ve been busy dyeing, felting, not much knitting, and traveling. I went to Yucatan to visit my folks for Christmas. It was a great trip. I went to places that I always wanted to visit. One of my highlights was the Calakmul ruins. For some reason, it always seemed inaccessible for me. In part because is pretty far from where we usually go. The biosphere borders with the Guatemalan Maya Biosfere Reserve where Tikal is located. It was interesting to drive across the country through the back roads and small villages, although a lot of the land is farmed with corn crops. I’m suspecting that big corporations are involved with this. It was disappointing to see that much of the jungle has been cut and for sure logged in order to plant vast amounts of corn fields. It was very sad to witness so much destruction of the habitat.

But the ruins itself are stunning and magnificent. The site has several big structures, I wanted to climb all of them, but there is one that was the tallest of all, so I decided to save all my energy for that one. Once on top I could see the vast jungle and happy to say that I didn’t see one telephone pole or any construction that interfered with my view.

Here are some pictures of my wanders in the Yucatan peninsula:

I had to take a picture of this kid that was so happy when he reached the tallest section of the pyramid. He was as much trilled as I was to be on top of the building and see the enormity of the green land.

The beautiful City of Campeche. The style is colonial with a nice caribbean flavor.

Some old haciendas are remodeled and converted into high end restaurants and hotels. We had a delicious lunch here and I had to take pictures of the place.

My beloved city of Merida. I lived here several years while I went to college. I always miss this place and I was very happy to spend some time here.

You see people like this all around Mexico.

Just looking at these pictures again makes me feel a little homesick. There is so much to explore in Yucatan. I know I sound like a comercial for turism, but is the truth. See you soon,
