IMG_3101 Uxmal Temple_RTP_ 29 Dec 13_ SFW

This is the main temple at the Mayan ruins in Uxmal, Mexico.  The fact that men could build something like this four or five hundred years ago, using only the primitive tools that were on hand, is incredible.  Uxmal is a beautiful place out in jungle of Mexico in the Yucatan Peninsula.  But it is remote … there is an eco-friendly hotel next to the grounds of the ruins that is very nice and that is it.  Nothing.  We rode a bus from Merida Mexico and that was about a three hour one way trip.  I have posted some other images from this area and trip in previous posts … just type Mexico in the ” Search ” box in the top right corner and see what comes up.  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

    • Thanks Joe … I have some around that I will find and post. I enjoyed touring the sites that we have been to and the people that were directing them were very knowledgeable. Uxmal was probably the largest site that we have toured and to think that the people that inhabited the site just vanished leaving no substantiated clues is incredible. It is hard to believe that thousands of people could vanish without a trace, to me, is wild! Thanks for commenting and please check back … Frank
