This site just opened last week and I have asked around but so far no explanation about the name Canada…

The site was extremely well organised you turn off the main highway into a parking lot pay 30 pesos for a ticket and then you are taken on a mini bus about 7km along this road

then you are dropped off and have to walk about 1 km to the site entrance…this is the welcome committee..

Our guide, Natalie, explains the features of the site.  It is not as majestic as the bigger pyramids further south but still pretty impressive and so close to town.  Also Natalie made sure that we stayed together as a group and we were not allowed to wonder off on our own.  Sit back and enjoy this step back in time…

I could tell you at this point of the day I did my usual 2 hour sunbathe but it would not be true……all I am saying is I spent two hours figuring out how to get back into the house after I left without the front door key……phone calls…. taxi rides…. and eventually located the spare key,,,,enough said!!!

Tonight not one but two live hockey games…..the first game here in Toronto
