Dear Ms. Andersson: What beatiful pictures, they speak directly to a favorite subject! I have been visiting Guatemala and the Yucatan Peninsula in search of the early Maya and was bound to Veracruz to see El Tajin (will wait for unrestricted travel). Lately have been reading research by renowned archaeologists on the Maya collapse, culture, trade, environmental etc. it's fascinating! also visit and photograph museum artifacts (NY Metropolitan and Natural History among others). From your splendid photos I gather more than a few days are the best option - here's hoping access to the sites is still unlimited. I've been planning a sabbatical to Guatemala, this time to the area of the Passion River (Chama, Coban) then trek to Tikal to experience how trade routes worked. Fyi the fabulous Pennsylvania Museum of Archeology/Anthropology just opened an exhibit of Maya polychrome vases through the fall. Again, thank you for sharing such spellbinding images.
