|David and Julie also became friends with our Mayan friend, and they wanted to visit his village, so we went down for a day |
visit with him and his family.
|The kids showed us some things they had found in their yard that they liked to play with. David and Cara were completely |
blown away to be able to see and touch such incredible Mayan artifacts.
|Really? I get to hold this incredible beauty in my hand? Is it a deity or something?|
|The detail after all this time is still incredible!|
|Both of the figurines without the heads had a few holes in the back of them. Victor's son turned |
the figurines upside down, covered two hold, blew into the third hole and was able to make these
|This picture doesn't really capture the true colors of this piece of stone, and we agreed it must|

|Just like children everywhere we've been, these were also mesmerized as soon as they got hold of a smart phone.|
|David asked to take someone's picture, and that started the ball rolling. Everyone wanted|

|David tried his hand at making tortillas, and the women all got a big kick out of that.|
|When we returned home we saw the first crab of the season. We have been told that before long there will be so many crabs|
that they completely cover the roads.
