The first four photos are of my stay in Antigua and the second four are from Panajachel, Sololá, Lago de Atitlán from where I traveled to Flores, Guatemala yesterday on a 13-hour bus trip after my 7-day visit to my friend Bob in Pana. Arriving at 8 PM all I could do was eat dinner, have a couple of beers and crash. But today I´m wandering the beautiful island city of Flores, a short distance away from the ancient Maya ruins of Tikal, a huge truly American metropolis founded 900 years before the spawn of christianity rose to infect humankind´s mind to its present dogmatic state. Tikal was a city that existed in royal splendor alongside similar Mayan metropolises for almost 2,000 years until 900 C.E. In the next few days I will be exploring and studying Tikal as well as other Mayan city-states in Guatemala and Belize, of which there are hundreds, many not yet excavated. The adventure continues….
