I wanted to walk every sand street on Holbox to find every mural. That just wasn't possible since the weather turned steaming hot while we were there, but I'm not exaggerating when I say you can't go a block without noticing another mural. Here are Sunday's pics!
On our cab ride to Chiquila from Cancun, our driver kept asking us if we'd noticed the all seeing eye in any Mayan murals or even signs along the road. I'm glad he mentioned it because I found a quick example in a Holbox mural shortly after we arrived. Soon after, we passed another eye, this one crying.
Look carefully. Do you see the sunset in the eye? Lots of symbolism in this mural!
Don't you love these roosters on this old wooden mechanic's shop? One of the many things we loved about Holbox was the preservation of so many old wooden frame palapa or tin-roofed buildings. Some modern structures have been built, but you'll see a lot of the older traditional dwellings in the village area.
The seagulls are all lined up on this wall! This reminds me of something else we loved about Holbox -- the wildlife, including raccoons.
We were surprised to hear there were lots of raccoons on Holbox. We realized a few days after we arrived that they loved the hotel pool in the wee hours. One night we awoke to what sounded like a cat fight. I stepped out on the balcony and there they were -- a family of raccoons lolling around in the shallow end of the pool.
I think I'll go loll around in a pool now!
