My friend Derrick and I went to the Museo de Arceologia y Antropologia in Comayagua Sunday to view the many fine artifacts excavated from sites in the Valle de Comayagua. Comayagua was the first capital of Honduras following the Spanish invasion in 1502. The capital was subsequently moved to Tegucigalpa but Comayagua retains its colonial charm and is a 30 to 40 minute bus ride from La Paz. Some of the artifacts date from 9,000 years ago, like the Cave of the Giants in the mid left photo. In the upper right is a copy of the cave paintings taken from the Giant´s Cave which is located in Marcala. In the mid left next to the Giant´s Cave is a model of what the ruins at Yarumela must have looked like 3,000 years ago. Only one of those mounds has been partially excavated, the ruin where I rode my horse to the top of the pyramid 3 weeks ago. At the museum we met a young lady from England who is working as a volunteer for 5 weeks with a group of friends building adobe brick homes in a small town called La Esmeralda.
