TEMPLO MAYOR (MUSICA PREHISPANICA)
The Temple of Kukulkan.
Wearing my Tomb Raider hat.
I never thought I’d ever get down here. Felt it was beyond my means. But we threw all our money in the pot and off we went.
People come here for different reasons: some to drink and party; some to veg and rest. I come for the adventure. I truly wanted to see all these Mayan Temples, Pyramids and Artifacts. Impossible in one shot. This was a huge dynastic culture that spanned several thousand years and is spread all over Central America. And they are finding more and more every year. In fact, they don’t have enough people or money to get at it all.
When I was a kid I wanted to be an Archeologist or Paleontologist. That didn’t happen, but I’ve never lost my keen interest in Ancient History. This trip to a small part of the Yucatan – Chichen Itza and EK Balam – was just a teaser. But wonderful.
Checking in late. Plane delayed for de-icing in Calgary.
Looks … rather opulent.
Looking forward to a little adventure.
Thot I’d pick up a couple of souvenirs.
Easy does it … This will look good on my mantle …
YA BABY !!
