The truly literate amongst you will immediately identify that photograph.
It is the opening scene of the finale of the first Star Wars movie. The one later dubbed A New Hope.
Those temples poking out of the jungle of Yavin 4 are actually two temples we saw today in Tikal. You could almost hear John Williams blaring in the background.
This was the part of the Guatemala trip to which I had been looking forward. Tikal -- one of the greatest of the Mayan city-states.
As you may guess, I have a lot to say about the Maya as a historical people. And Tikal is a great place to talk about them.
But, it was a long day -- and the internet is very slow here and available only in the lobby of our hotel. The Jungle Lodge.
Tomorrow evening I will be in Barra de Navidad. So, Friday sounds like a good day to wrap up this trip to Guatemala.
See you then.
I just wanted you to know I have not been monkeying around.
