Campeche – Mexico Part III

We loved walking the streets of Campeche.

The city is part of UNESCO World Heritage as one of the most beautiful example of Spanish colonial period in the New World. The colourful centre of this harbour town, surrounded by defensive walls, contains all the remarkable historic monuments.

The first impression was to be in a sort of Candy Town: every building is painted with bright and intense colours and the central square was pervaded by music and dancing people.

We visited the Museum of Mayan Architecture and a colonial private house open to the public and I have to say that everything was pretty impressive.

I was surprised by how friendly and warm people were, but when I tried stop them for a photo they seemed to be embarrassed so I preferred to respect their shyness.

On our way back, the car suddenly started to gasp and when we take a look we discovered that it had a flat tire. A car stopped to help us and this caring local family kinda adopted us.

After had helped Mario to fix the tire, they gave us some chocolate and simply left. I think they represents perfectly Mexican approach to tourists.
