There were way too many pictures of these fascinating ruins that I wanted to share with you to put into one post. So the photos continue from yesterday.
For an idea of where this is, here is a link on google maps... http://maps.google.com/maps?q=17.764693,+-88.346912&num=1&t=h&vpsrc=0&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=17.76458,-88.34666&spn=0.002641,0.004823&z=18&iwloc=A
|Darrel, Mayan Warrior, is standing at the base of the tallest of the ruins. There is someone else standing at the top. That's how big they are.|
A friend's son was in to "planking" last summer, so I just had to plank on this alter at the top of the ruins for Spencer. While I was doing this, it hit me that this was most likely some sort of sacrificial alter. But, I came out of it alive.
(Planking is when you lie on something face down with your arms and legs extended and stiffen your body. It's complete by having someone take your picture while doing it.)
This was our luxurious bus. The seats were hard, the air barely worked and the shocks were shot. And we've already discussed the "road". While driving back, someone in the group had the nerve to complain about the ride and I couldn't help but think that we are in a third world country, in the middle of the jungle, visiting ruins from up to 4000 years ago. And you want to complain about the ride?! I thought it added to the adventure and would have been happy with less. At least we didn't have to carry the chicken on our lap for lunch when we got there.
Then it was off into the sunset to our next adventure.
