I was only in the town of Palenque 1 full day, and since it was Easter Sunday I very much wanted to be able to Skype the family, but my hotel had no wifi.  I was forced to get out and do stuff.  My one day there was plenty of time to get a touch of sun, see the ruinas, wander around town, and take a much-needed nap.  I am fascinated by ancient ruins, Mayan or otherwise, and loved the fact that at Palenque we were allowed to climb the pyramids and get up-close and personal with history.  Of all the sites I’ve visited, this one seemed the most exotic, with pyramids rising from the jungle and green growing everywhere.  I’ll let pictures tell you the rest
