And one of our major must do's - Tikal. Meanwhile back in 700bc, Tikal was the largest (and tallest) known Maya city in Central America. We booked a shuttle to the Park to play Tourista for the day.
Towering pyramids peek out of the jungle canopy while sounds of angry howler monkeys and chirping birds fill the air. There Jaguars, howler and spider monkeys, crocodiles and giant Guinea pigs roam wild. The site at one point spread well into Belize and Mexico.
Soon - A few Maya rules to survive past 18 : do not be good looking, do not be a virgin, do not be the captain of the sports team...or you get sacraficed. Also, do not be the king - you have to bleed our your eartips, finger tips and penis tip.... and bleed them often...... Bri no longer has aspirations of being a king.
Angry Monkey ….

What a good photo. You can really feel the challenge of the climb. From, on Aug 15, 2014 at 11:00AM
