still on vacation


Yesterday we were at Uxmal... without a doubt one of the most spectacular mesoamerican sites we've ever been to. Pack your bags and go! You won't regret it. The Mayans built some of the most beautiful temple complexes on earth.

The size of the civilizations on the Yucatan is staggering. The sheer number of ruins have to be seen to be believed. Along the way we've run into many interesting architectural, symbolic, and iconographic parallels between Angor Wat and Mayan art... more on that in a future post, later this week.

Until then,

May the living light of Christ discover us.
