Antigua, Guatemala with the volcano I climbed in the background (volcan Pacaya).

Big foliage. (Palenque)

 

 


Palenque. The little colored specks are people on the ruins; the big dark specks are just a few of the _thousands_ of dragonflies that were swarming the top of this temple.

 

 


Reconstruction in the Copan museum to show what the temples originally looked like (wow!)

 

 


The way most of the temples look now

 

 


Carving in Copan's museum: the sun with a rabbit (daytime sun), if I recall.

 

 


Tourist-fodder copy of a famous Mayan carving

 

 


Another carving from Copan's museum

 

 


Graffitti and ruins in Tegucigalpa

El Patio, my favorite restaurant in Teguz. In real life it looks less evil and more surreal.
