Today, Tikal, in El Peten. I almost decided not to come here, out of simple tiredness and an assumption about how touristy it would be. I am so grateful I forced myself to do so. Tiakl is gorgeous, the jungle is wonderful, the guide was great, even the food was good. People aren’t kidding when they say “you must go to Tikal,” it’s not just a tourist thing like the Eiffel Tower or something.
Tikal is enormous. We could only see some of it during our five hour tour. But we hit the high points and climbed so much that any more and my legs would have simply fallen off.
We climbed the pyramid in Plaza Q and checked out stelae.
Much more coming…
