I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love the Maya ruins at Calakmul. Jason shares my love of Maya ruins, and is perhaps even more fascinated by Calakmul than I am. In fact – Jason is the person who introduced me to the wonders of the Maya world. Jack has caught the bug too, but the youngest McFarland does not yet share our passion for Maya ruins. They make him look like this.
He calls our days at Maya ruins – “Mommy days.” So he was less than thrilled to learn that we had planned not just one but two trips into the Calakmul ruins.
Maya ruins contain far too much of this:
To really delight and thrill his 5 1/2 year old soul.
But our William does LOVE astronomy. So he was thrilled to learn from our guide that this temple was dedicated to the planet Venus. So here William and his Mommy are on a “Mommy day” both smiling on the steps of the Venus Temple at Calakmul. It may be the only thing William and I agreed on the whole day!
