New content! Deep in the jungle!
The news feed this morning is full of the usual. Disaster, dismay, disarray. But today something unusual: discovery!
Apparently two entire cities worth of Mayan ruins have been found deep in the Yucatan jungles near Laguneta. How awesome is our world, how amazing, that we can have entire cities that were probably bustling with life as recently as one thousand years ago, but that we don’t even know about now at all.
Are there more? Probably.
I visited a Mayan ruin once, years ago, a jungle city named Coba. The jungle was as impressive as the city; not the kind of thing a Colorado kid like myself had ever encountered. I climbed the central pyramid – a 13-story behemoth – only to find a moth with a foot-wide wingspan hiding inside the tiny temple room at the top. A foot wide!
But I digress. This isn’t about a gringo touristo visiting a known site. This is brand new. What an adventure! Discovering something like that! Entire cities! Can you imagine?
The doorway into one of the ruins is described as the stylized giant-sized maw of a Mayan earth god monster. How awesome!
Mawry’s trap sense is tingling
The maw of an earth god monster. Wow. What kind of loot must lie behind something like that?
The mind boggles.
