Wherever you wander in the spectacular and sprawling ruins of the Maya city of Tikal you see graffiti scratched into the ancient walls.

Most of it is modern - the names of boys and girls who care not that they are defiling the crumbling walls of a world heritage site.

But if you know where to look you can also find graffiti done by the Maya themselves, like this anthropomorphic rabbit etched into the white plaster stucco of a palace or temple on a raised platform in the Plaza of Seven Temples.

Rabbits were associated with writing and arts and may have been the patrons of scribes. A rabbit scribe is shown on the famous Princeton Vase, a funerary ceramic excavated in the Peten region of Guatemala.

Rabbits were also associated with the Moon and the Moon goddess Ix-Chel, either as consort or child.

Interestingly, the ancient and modern Maya see the figure of a rabbit on the face of the full Moon, just as the Chinese do.

Tikal is one of those magical places that will bring out your inner Indiana Jones as you climb the steps of the awe-inspiring pyramids and scramble among the ruined ball courts.

But give yourself time to reach the lesser visited areas of the site and enjoy the excitement of finding surviving remnants of the Maya that most people never see.

Desde que se empieza a caminar por sus senderos se devuelve uno 2000 años en el tiempo, pude ver a los sacerdotes en sus ceremonias, los obreros construyendo el Templo del Gran Jaguar y el gobernador Ah Cacao inspeccionando lo que iba a ser su tumba y paso al inframundo, las madres cuidando de sus hijos porque los padres andaban cazando alguna danta para la cena, estuvimos en los lugares donde dormían, donde jugaban a la pelota, vimos sus reservorios de agua, subimos sus templos, presenciamos un atardecer espectacular, los congos y cientos de pájaros competían con sus cantos, para que nos llegara la noche en la Gran Plaza, el cielo se nos llenó de estrellas en un abrir y cerrar de ojos.

En resumen, un día que me hizo sentir mil cosas, uno que NUNCA voy a olvidar. Tikal, Peten. Por @thomas_no_tomas

A special day.
Up at 430am. At the airport 530. Flying at 630. Landed in Petén at 8.

I had the wonderful chance to visit Tikal. About 180 miles away from Amatitlan is the National Park of Tikal, located in Petén. Tikal is an ancient Mayan Citadel that dates from around the 4th Century BC to 1st Century AD. At it's height, which is considered to be from 200 AD to 900 AD, the temples were erected.

The park holds five temples and three large complexes, called acropoles; these are thought to be temples and palaces for the upper class

We began at the the backside of Temple 1. We walked through the Central Acropolis, where we caught sight of Temple 5, before we enter Plaza Major. It is here where have Temple I and II and Northern Acropolis. Temple I is also known the the Temple of the Great Jaguar and is 154ft tall. Inside is the tomb of Jasaw Chan K’awiil I, former ruler. Temple II is the Temple of Masks, erected by Jasaw Chan K’awiil I as a tomb for his wife, Lady Kalajuun Une' Mo'. This Temple stands at 125 ft.

Standing on Temple 3, you can see the other Temples, piercing the forestline.
From here you can see Temple of the 2 Headed Serpent, or Temple 4. At 212 ft, it is the tallest pre-Columbian structure in the Americas. Standing on this structure, looking out, I cannot imagine what the Mayans felt or thought up there.

I can not recommend visiting these sites enough. To see, walk, and hear a memory of what this place was is inspiring. Standing on the peak of these temples, overlooking the whole jungle, picturing what these places were, what they stood for.

I always do say you find change at the top of a mountain.
Para todos de Centroamerica, vayan y visiten las ruinas de las civilizaciones de donde vinieron nuestro antepasados. Es un espectaculo. Se daran cuenta que grandiosa estas ciudades fueron. Yo me senti muy orgulloso. Personalmente, esto cambio como pensaba de yo mismo y de mi cultura. Es una belleza.

At the end of the 18 mile hike, we visited the island of Flores for some ice cream.
The parlor stood in front of a lake, Petén Itzá, where a car floated on by in the sunset.

Wow.
