Whilst my brother was visiting me from england it gave me the opportunity to visit some of the ruins. I never get tired of wandering around the ruins and no matter how many times I visit I always see something that I have not seen before .
This time I was able to see the latest area they had uncovered still showing signs of paint on the stones.
The inticate work of the maya are breathtaking…………. the peace and calm of the ruins is exhilerating I also like to go and see Jesus who is a woodcarver that works at the site . He is becoming quite famous with his work and so he should. Its amazing and I would recommend anyone to go and visit him. He is very knowledgeable about the site and the history of the maya .Twice or maybe three times he has been invited to the United States to show off his art.
I have known Jesus for many years even before starting on the venture of creating a restaurant then a hotel .His only son was very small but now his family has grown to four !!I have been to family weddings , birthdays and baptisms .He is a very personalbe young man and very enterprising with his work.His father is one of the custodians of Kabah and used to take Jesus along when he was only a young boy. So he knows the ruins of Kabah inside and out . I did take note this time that some of the ruins on the opposite side of the road where you will find the arch of Kabah with its red hanprints of the builder still visible , have been sealed off . I was a little disappointed as I liked this side the best… maybe becasue tourists dont often go to the other side…. they always seem to be in a hurry to see all the ruins in one day. A pity really but I do understand their time is short and I am sure lots would love to stay longer.
I will post photos for you all to view
Maybe you already know Kabah but those who dont enjoy and maybe it will give you the urge to come and visit us .
