Hilton hotel tries product placement in Cancun

Instead of being awed by the Mayan ruins we visited in Cancun Island this weekend, something felt very wrong. Behind the structures that were once used for religious ceremonies, a giant pyramid-shaped Hilton hotel could be spotted hovering in the background.

It was really disgusting how companies like the Hilton manage to sneak into your brain. It reminds me of the Wal-Mart that built close to Mexico City's Teotihuacan area in order for pyramid-climbers to have a perfect view of the yellow smiley face from one of Mexico's most sacred sites.
