Chichen Itza, which means "at the mouth of the well of the wizards of water," was a completely different experience from Machu Picchu. One of the most surprising things was that along every path there was street vendors which really detracted from the sacred energy of the site. Also, because someone defaced the site with graffiti, visitors are no longer allowed to climb the structures which was very sad. But none the less and I am glad to have gotten to see the Mayan site. Photos of my entire trip are posted on my Flickr account.
