After parking the car, we had to walk a short distance towards the main house with its open verandah. We were made welcome and provided a table with a view of a fountain, characterized by frequent visits from a variety of birds. This reminded me that I also needed to make a visit before I sampled the cold beer I had ordered.
In preparation for writing these comments, I reread the section from a publication titled 'Haciendas of Yucatan' and liked this thought-provoking quote. "Many of them (the haciendas) have been restored and converted into hotels and restaurants, but it should be recalled that they are the physical space that bears witness to the labor relations between two classes of men in Yucatan: masters and servants." I was reminded of this when Valentin took a wrong turn on the drive to the parking area.
