Der nächste Tag began am frühen morgen - Genau genommen um 7:30 Uhr. Mit dem kostenlos geliehenen Fahrrad meines Hostels ging es bei entspannten 25 Grad los Richtung Ausgrabungsstätte der Maya in Tulum. Die Mayastätte in Tulum ist einer der bekanntesten Ausgrabungsstätten in ganz Mexico. Vor dem Eingang tummeln sich entsprechend viele Händler und Straßenkünstler, was man aber auch mal erlebt haben sollte.
Gegen Mittag ist es hier ziemlich überfüllt, deswegen ist eine frühe Anreise sehr zu empfehlen.

The next day started early in the morning - actually at 7:30 am. With the free rented bike of my hostel, at relaxed 25 degrees I started to the excavation site of the Maya in Tulum. The Mayan excavation site in Tulum is one of the most famous in Mexico. In front of the entrance there are a lot of merchants and street artists, a thing you should have experienced once.
Around noon it is quite crowded here, so an early arrival is highly recommended.

Voladores und Kokosnuss

Die ''Los Voladores'' auf Deutsch ''Die Fliegenden'' ist ein Tanzritual der Mayas, welches hunderte Jahre alt ist.
Dabei klettern 5 Männer auf einen ca. 30 Meter hohen Mast. Einer davon setzt sich auf eine am Mast befestigte Plattform und spielt Flöte, die 4 anderen lassen sich mit einem Seil von einer drehbaren Plattform (kopfüber!) hinab. Man sagte mir der Flötenspieler solle die Sonne darstellen und die 4 herumwirbelnden Tänzer die 4 Elemente - Erde, Wasser, Feuer, Luft. Leider habe Ich vom Tanz keine Bilder, die Vorbereitungen dauern sehr lange und auf dem Nachhauseweg ist mein Akku leer gewesen. :(

Voladores and coconut

The ''Los Voladores'' in English ''The flying ones'' is a Mayan dance ritual that is hundreds of years old.
5 men climb a mast about 30 meters high. One of them sits on a platform attached to the mast and plays flute, the other four spin down with a rope from a rotating platform (upside down!). I was told that the flute player should represent the sun and the 4 whirling dancers the 4 elements - earth, water, fire, air. Unfortunately I have no pictures of the dance, the preparations take a very long time and on the way home the battery of my camera was empty. :(

Bevor es nun endlich in die alte Mayastätte ging, gönnte Ich mir noch eine frische Kokosnuss von diesem coolen Typen!

Before it finally went to the old Mayan site, I got myself a fresh coconut from this awesome dude!

Hereinspaziert

Nachdem Ich mich bei den Händlern umgeschaut habe, jedoch nichts kaufte, da alles viel zu teuer gewesen ist - kauft lieber auf kleinen Märkten ein, betrat Ich endlich die Mayastätte. Ein mystischer toller und teilweise verwunschener Ort, den man bei einem Eintritt von 52 Pesos (umgerechnet 2.50 Euro) unbedingt besuchen sollte. Direkt am Meer gelegen, kann man nur erahnen wie paradiesisch die Mayas gelebt haben müssen. In späteren Blogeinträgen werde Ich mehr auf die Kultur der Maya eingehen. Für das erste lasse Ich die Bilder für sich sprechen.

Walk right in

I did not buy anything at the merchants market, because everything was too expensive - rather shop in small markets. I finally entered the Mayan site. A mystical and partly enchanted place, which is definitely worth a visit. you only have to pay an entrance fee of 52 pesos (equivalent to 2.50 Euro). Located directly at the sea, you can only guess how paradisiacal the Mayas must have lived. In later blog entries I will go into more detail about the Mayan culture. For now I let the pictures speak for themselves.

Bis Bald

Ein herrlicher und ereignisreicher Mittag neigte sich dem Ende zu. Die Tulum Mayastätte ist definitiv einen Besuch wert. Denkt aber dran möglichst früh, am besten schon um 8 Uhr dort zu sein, damit Ihr nicht in einer überfüllten Ausgrabungsstätte ankommt.

See you soon

A wonderful and eventful noon came to an end. The Tulum Maya site is definitely worth a visit. But remember to be there as early as possible, preferably by 8am, so you don't arrive at an overcrowded excavation site.


Ein fettes Danke an @rivalzzz , der mir erlaubt hat, seine selbstentworfene Trennlinie farblich zu modifizieren und zu verwenden. Schaut mal bei ihm vorbei. In der letzten Zeit bin Ich sehr in mein Studium eingebunden gewesen und war deshalb nicht sehr aktiv. Wird sich jetzt wieder ändern. Steem on!

A big thanks to @rivalzzz "who allowed me to modify and use his self-designed dividing line. Check him out. Recently I have been very involved in my studies and was therefore not very active. It'll change again now. Steem on!

I've travelled a lot in Mexico.Of course also in Yucatan. I have been to Tulum, Merida, Valladolid, Isla Holbox and Isla mujeres. I was in Mexico City for a few days, too.
More parts will follow soon. :)
Thanks for stopping by :)

Wow, great post. The Maya trails and historic sites in Mexico is on my bucket list. I've traveled most of Europe and the UK, but never towards the America's side. I guess it is time I go. ;)

Hey @extremjogging! If you have the time, GO. Mexico is a wonderful country, though I have been mostly in Yucatan.
Let me know if you go to Mexico, Some friends of mine living in Mexico City and Guadalajara. If they have time and you should be in one of these cities - maybe they could make the local guide for you

Thanks for the virtual tour! Well done, that you find an opportunity to travel! I sometimes think that traveling and finding out the world is some part of our mission on earth.

Hi @sgorenko. I'm glad you found my contribution. :)
I can totally agree with you!
Traveling is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

Interesting stuff about those rituals. What's up with those legs hanging in the trees? Or are they not legs?

I'm glad you asked @stef-05m, but I can't answer your question.
I simply explained it to myself as a kind of art linked to the Voladores.
The fact that it is only half the body could be a warning that tradition and history could be forgotten? But that is my own interpretation. What do you think about that?

Beautiful location Mayas left an unique heritage. It is a pity that some witness of that just survived.


10

Yes. The Maya have a very exciting story. Something about ChiChen Itza and Ek Balam is coming soon. There I will also go a little more into the historical.
Thanks for stopping by
