Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Michael Bartley

On a visit to Chichen Itza, I saw this Mayan warrior carved into the stone wall of this famous ancient city on the Yuacatan pennisula in Mexico. This proud warrior has been guarding this great city for over 2000 years. In the background is the main pyramid that marks the center of this influential Mayan city and civilization.

Location: Chichen Itza, Mexico
