“… I never gave up, I always dreamed about visiting the Merida of the Maya, Chichen Itza, Uxmal. Yucatan Peninsula place where boleros were born, where dolls dream with Armando Manzanero. A place without myths, gods, lies, Matusalém, Peter Pan, the best, in this tour is that we return to Yucatan…”
Fragment of poem dedicated to Yucatán by Joaquín Sabina.
