ARCHaEOLOGY ROCKS ADVENTURE
We have now entered a new and different world compared to Peru. Here in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico everything is hot, humid, lush, and full of igauanas!!! See how many iguanas you can count in all of our photos. We began with an orientation in the Maya museum and the adjacent archaeology site San Miguelito near our hotel.
We were not able to take pictures inside of the museum, but we do have photos of the San Miguelito site. In comparison, the Maya used much smaller stone blocks than the Quechua. The construction of the Maya temples and homes were of limestone rocks as opposed to the granite (and much larger) rocks in Peru. The Maya people were also experts in astronomy and used it in the design and construction of their cities and temples.
