Back in time at Tikal

After sunrise the guide started to talk us through some of the ruins of Tikal. He showed how the acoustics of the Gran Plaza made sound identical to the National bird the Quetzal when he clapped. The ancient Mayans has designed it that way specifically for the positions where the nobility would sit.

We felt we had seen lots of Tikal so made our way back to the room, tried to put Indi to bed, she was having none of it so we gathered ...

Beards With Benefits

... and I was pretty new into the country so got the shuttle bus direct rather than taking the public transport there – the only time I did it.

It’s not as though I always enjoy the more difficult, unobtainable and/or stupid (or adventurous depends on how you look at it) approach, but when im short on money I always take the cheap, and usually uncomfortable option.

Police ignored us as we sped by, and we were only stopped ...

... Carlos and he was extremely passionate about his country and Tikal especially. There were times he would go off topic and ramble about various other things, I tended to tune out a bit then. On the whole he was great and we saw a lot. He even took us off the beaten path and through the bush (where we were attacked by mosquitos) to see, amongst other things, the old trucks which had been used in the archeological dig had been dumped and left to rust. There are 7 ...
