Close to the hacienda was Izamal, a lovely little town with a huge church and monastery in the center of things.  A procession with fireworks and elaborate paper streamers was weaving its way through town towards the church when we arrived.  Mayan ruins seemed to be around every corner.  Cochinita pibil at a local restaurant was the perfect birthday dinner.  And we were treated to an amazing storm on the evening's drive back to the villa.
