Chichen Itza: Maya Ruins

Recently, I was hired to shoot a group of young ladies in Cancun Mexico. While this was fun, the real fun was the excursion to the Mayan Ruins at Chichen Itza. Apprarently the closed the steps to travel to the top of the temples, due to too many people (avg. 5 per year) falling to their deaths on the steep steps.

I find it amazing at how the mayan people were able to live during such times. Imagine the fanfare and excitement when the grounds were filled with hundreds of thousands of people yelling and screaming in excitement. Too bad all of the excitment was for someone being sacrificed.

This was a great piece of history…then we got kicked out..long story, aske me about it sometime.
