We arrived in Mexico a few days ago and one of our first excursions was to Uxmal, a beautiful Mayan ruin located about an hour south of Mérida. Once again, our schedule had us there early afternoon and the sun was very bright. The site is much larger than I imagined and is one of the most ornate and well-constructed of the Mayan cities.
The Elizabeth River is a busy, urban, working river. Standing at Waterside (in the background with blue roof), one can watch an array of ships, including freighters, war ships, working tugs and an occasional tall ship flying a foreign flag. Home to one of the busiest harbors on the East coast and the largest naval base in the world, Norfolk, Virginia is proud of its nautical history.
