Ever wonder what it would like to be there?

This video, by Evan J. Albright, captures the experience of the people who have come from all over the world to celebrate the shadow-and-light feathered serpent as he makes his arrival in mid March. In less than eight minutes you can know what it is like to spend the day at Chichen Itza, from opening to closing.
