beamBeam Theme #22

The wood beam or lintel in this picture is over 1000 years old.  You can see it in the center under the thatching.  I can’t remember what this building originally was.  I think the beam was made of rubber wood.

archArch Theme #8

This archway was one of only 5 entryways through the wall into Tulum.  The wall ran along 3 sides of the city and the ocean runs along the 4th with a cliff face.  The wall was 16ft high and 26ft thick.  Very impressive.

traditionTradition Theme #319

The large building in the back is where they would sacrifice children on the solstices and equinoxes.  We weren’t allowed to climb it though.

sandSand Theme #267

Now for something a bit lighter.  This sand castle was on the beach at the resort.  I think some kids worked very hard on it.
