Day Two of Catch-up

historyHistory Theme #166

One of the buildings overlooking the ocean at the ruins of Tulum in Mexico.  We were told what all of the buildings were but I can’t remember.

 

artArt Theme #9

This is some original art inside one of the buildings.  We weren’t allowed to go inside and it was all roped off.  I had to get down on my knees and use my 300mm lens with my 2x zoom to see what it even looked like.  I was thrilled when I put it on my ipad later to look at it.  There is even still some color left on it.  I think a lot of people completely missed it.  Such a shame.

Another beautiful building at Tulum.  In the grass in front you can see a low stone wall.  It is surrounding a grave.  The priests were buried in these large plots.  One priest to a plot.  I was quite surprised about the size of them.  Just a little fun thing, if you look along the top of the building you will see some iguanas hanging out in the sun.  They were everywhere.  I just love them so there will be pictures in the future.  lol
