Chichen Itza via the grassy knoll in Dallas…

Its 12 noon and our taxi driver shows up in a shinny Porsche Cayenne (Jordan) for our first leg of our trip to Mexico via Dallas.  The goal is to visit Dealey Plaza and stroll around try to visualize the crowds cheering Kennedy’s motorcade as it turns onto Elm Street reliving the video clip we have all seen a thousand times.  Our thoughts on the grassy knoll, the six floor window and yes all the conspiracy theories as well as seeing the nearby JFK Memorial. (AKA killing a long layover, Smillie stile)

Ok the real trip is to Mexico to climb on some of it ruins!

The draft travel agenda: Porsche to the Commuter Rail to the Silver Line to American Airlines flight 349 to Dallas, taxi to Dealey Plaza, taxi to the Airport and flight to Cozumel, taxi to the harbor, boat to San Miguel, find a rental car then off to the Ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza before heading to Cancun and eventually back to Cozumel.

My sidekick on this trip is Jake who packed a small backpack for the trip…

Stay tuned…

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
