In 1990 I visited Tikal with my Aussie friend Cathy. We stayed at a horrible hotel, but slept atop the Mayan pyramids surrounded by the thick Peten jungle. Howler monkeys dashed from tree to tree and the buzz of insects hummed outside our mosquito nettings. This abandoned city had had a population of 90,000 souls around 600AD.
No one lived there now.
And this was before the time of Baktun.
Enjoy the last two days of the 12th Baktun.
The 13th will be a good one.
