This is the third time I have tried to make a review of the ruins of Yaxchilan. May be aluxes did not allow that my reviews were uploaded, may be aluxes were interested in what I wrote and censored my contribution. May be the point is that when we first arrvied to Yaxchilan, Carlos, our guide, started to tell us about aluxes. He said they are small and mischievous creatures that appear when it starts to get dark. They will look like your brother or they may talk like anyone of your relatives, but they, Carlos said, are only aluxes creating confusion.
Yaxchilan, with or without aluxes, is a place that deserves to be visited. There are its stelas, there is its magnificent building that shows to foreigners its beatiful and ellaborated crests (crestería) while it waits for some wind to make them alive. There is also, as Carlos said, an stucco figure of 2 aluxes next to a ballgame player waiting that you take notice of them while nearby you hear a howling monkey. He may be trying to tell you that aluxes exist because he has seen them como out from a stucco figure and walk happily around Yaxchilan until the sun appears once again. At this moment they look at each other and walk back again to their stucco figure, to what is an eternal home for them.
