Client Video: Hacienda Mulsay de la Magdalena Mulsay, which means hill of red ants in Maya, was a Mayan site long before colonial times. Its colonial birth was most likely quite early, in the XVI/XVII centuries, as the property close to Merida was given to the Montejo family and their lieutenants. Mulsay was owned by Juan de Montejo y Maldonado, grandson of Francisco de Montejo El Mozo part of the founder family of Merida.Dating from the 17th century, Hacienda Mulsey is one of the oldest colonial estates in the Yucatan. The present day owners has completely wall in the entire hacienda. The four room guard house is really outstanding. It has a living room, huge eat in kitchen, large bedroom and bathroom. The inter terrace is lush and very private. This alone could be rented on a regular basis. There is also another small building for a grounds keeper as well. The grounds are magnificent, tall stately trees, and a vast variety of blooming plants. The main hacienda needs some tender love and attention. There are about 10 large rooms, magnificent colonnade in both the front and back of this lovely old hacienda. There was at one time a pool in the center of the home, it reminds me of a Roman bath house. There are several other building around the hacienda that were used for henequen, the original old smoke stack is still there as well.

It is a beautiful sunny autumn day (November 5, 2009) with early morning temperatures hovering above the freezing point. It is a good day to write a short blog before I start a long drive to Victoria, BC via Seattle, Washington. On second thought, any day is a good day to write a blog since it brings back such great memories of our trip to Mexico. As it turned out the blog was not finished in Montreal after all. It is fair to say that there is no such thing as a "short blog" if there are a lot of photos to edit, etc. It is now November 17, 2009 and I am sitting in Victoria, BC by the inner harbour finally finishing this blog. When I say I am sitting by the inner harbour I don't mean that literally but I can see the inner harbour only 100 meters from where I am sitting in our temporary accommodations. We move into our condo in James Bay, the historic area ...

Yucatan '08 This class/field trip is structured to take students through "space and time" from 300 AD to contemporary times. The primary theme is changes in the landscape or the "sequence occupance" of the region. Students will meet once a week in preparation for the winter break field trip to the Yucatan. The trip will explore Mayan archaeological sites from Uxmal (300 AD), Ek Balam, to Chichen Itza (1100 AD). The Colonial era will be highlighted with tours through Merida (1545), Ixamal, a salt plant operational since the 1700s, and a hacienda. Contemporary changes of the region are viewed with visits to an ejido, a henequen plant, a US manufacturing plant and experiences with the pros and cons of tourism - a government planned resort on the Caribbean (Cancun). The physical-environmental geography of the region will be introduced with an opportunity to swim in a Karst cave, visit a large flamingo sanctuary, and hike through a community-initiated nature preserve in Quintana Roo. Students also have free time for self-exploration, an important component of the educational experience.
Old henequen tram to Cuzama cenotes Mayan entrepreneurs from Cuzama have an adaptive use for the old narrow gauge rail systems that they used to take henequen in from the fields for processing. They use the trams and ponys to take tourists to visit some of the many cenotes in the area.
Sotuta de Peon - Merida, Mexico Just 45 minutes outside of Merida is Sotuta de Peon - a hacienda and plantation where you can learn about how life was in Mexico for both the wealthy landowners and the workers. Tour the house, learn about sisal rope making and even take a swim in an underground cenote. Definitely worth a day trip if you visit Merida, Mexico. - created at

TravelPod is a company of TripAdvisor™. Solskjaer20's travel blog entry: "25th April Anzac Day! Woke up about 1pm, so missed the dawn service. We headed out to this restaurant owned by Modelo brewery and had a beautiful lunch and a couple of beers, before heading off to do some food shopping and back to the house where Brendan and I updated our blogs and e-mails, checked the result of the Anzac Day clash - go bombers, and downloaded the last post and had a minutes silence for the diggers. I got pretty upset as Anzac Day is usually a big day for me back home with the footy, dawn service and with grandpa passing away and leaving the war medals to mum. I had to go for a half hour walk by myself and had a little tear up session thinking about some things I missed from home. (little did i know in two to three days id have real things to cry about as swine flu strikes!) I got back to the house and listened to some aussie music and talked **** with Brendan in the hammock in the back garden before some of Jettes friends come over for a huge drinking session that went well into the morning. I don't think I was a sociable as I could have been after that afternoon, but what can you do. 26th April We had to get up early, slightly hung over to say the least, to go and visit cenotes de Cuzama. Which is basically three cenotes (limestone ...

From Cancun to merida. Henequen
Truck Here are Jorien (from Holland) and José Luis (from Mexico) in the truck (pron. "trook") that we took to and from the cenotes (openings to underground rivers) in Cuzamá. The trucks are small carts that are pulled by horses along a small track originally constructed for mining the henequén. Anyway, this was filmed after the second cenote, on our way back to the car. There had been a fantastic downpour, so we were soaking wet and -- for the first time in the month I had been in México -- chilly.
