One of the 7 New Wonders of the World

Justly so.

For me, this was the highlight of our Holiday to the Yucatan. It deserves special treatment.
As a kid I had wanted to be an Archeologist or Paleontologist. In the 60's I had lived in the Drumheller, Alberta for 5 years - the Badlands of Alberta - and I had made many trips up into the surrounding hills to gather a large collection of Dinosaur Bones, Petrified Wood, Fossils, etc. Likewise I have always been very interested in Ancient History and civilizations. To go to Yucatan and Chichen Itza seemed like a dream beyond my reach.

Yet here we were.
Life has it's wonders and mysteries. I ride the carpet.

Did I know I was going to see the Temple Pyramid of Kukulkan / Quetzalcoatl? No. Absolutely not. This was all arranged by Rose, my partner.
I don't believe she could have known how much this would mean to me?

That's another wonder in this world. 

Truthfully though, I don't know that I would have made a good Archeologist?
I'm not much for pecking in the dirt with a brush and trowel.
I'm more inclined to grab the loot and run for the door.

Maybe not such a good idea.

Anyway ... I've called on a couple of friends to help me out.

We've got this.

Onward! Part 2
