The landscape at Tulum had an unreal, biblical aspect.

.The view looks just like the pictures in my old Children's Bible. Well, the buildings were in better condition, but otherwise...
I mentally populated the landscape with people dressed Old Testament-style, rather than Mayan-style.

Our tour guide, Mary, (pronounced MAH-ree) was nowhere near as interesting as Eduardo had been, and did not give much of
a guided tour. She willingly answered questions, but her historical sociology beliefs contrasted sharply with other information we had received. For one thing, she did not believe the sacrificial offerings were taken from the best they had to offer, but from the surplus they had available. Think about it. You want to appease a god so you give him your leftovers?
