Presenting Ichmul from above

In an earlier post I presented Ichmul from the ground level. Here is a cloudy image from Google Earth where some of the locations are marked. This is how Ichmul appears from a mile above the ground. How to get to Ichmul? The site can be reached from Chikindzonot to the east and Peto and Calotmul to the west. From the south it can be reached from Xquerol and Sacalaca (but remember that you actually cross a state boundary (Yucatan/Quintana Roo) if you take this route. You may be stopped by suspicious policemen with machine guns since this is where drugs are being transported past the main roads and custom check points. If you lack a car you can catch a bus from Valladolid that stops here once a day on its way to/from Peto.
