  1. I’ve been to Mexico twice. On one of the trips, I went to Chichen Itza and climbed the pyramid in that picture. There’s nothing in the room at the top of the pyramid except tourists and hungry stray dogs.

  2. Mexico holds very special place in my heart, for that's where I got married. I, too, have climbed to the top of El Castillo at Chichen Itza.
