During my bike tour from Alaska to Argentina, I stopped off to look at several archaeological sites. Tikal in Guatemala was certainly one of the most memorable!
Visiting Tikal in Guatemala
Today, I visited Tikal for the second time in five years. Sometimes, its hard to believe how fortunate I am in the places that I have visited and seen. And the important thing to remember of course, is that anyone can do this !
As I have already written quite a bit about this archaeological site in Guatemala, I thought I would simply share a few photos of Tikal with you. These aren't the best quality unfortunately, as the camera I had for this bike tour wasn't great.
Photos of Tikal
I tried a landscape view of Tikal – Think it turned out ok !!
So, a nice relaxing few hours spent wandering around the ancient site and taking some photos of Tikal.
The pictures capture some of the things I had seen there, but its much harder to imagine the noise of the howler monkeys that were echoing around the surrounding jungle. It sounded a bit like a few dinosaurs had gotten loose from Jurassic Park !
Sitting on some of the temples was very peaceful indeed, and although it's is a major tourist centre, I never felt overwhelmed by other visitors.
