PHOTO OF THE DAY: Mayan Jungle Temples of Tikal

After 12 years, I revisited the ancient Mayan jungle temples of Tikal in Guatemala this morning. Great news! Not only is it all still here, but thankfully my memory hasn't been serving me up lies for the past decade and I can confirm it is indeed one of the most beautiful historic sites on the planet. Thank you Parque Nacional Tikal for doing such a fantastic job of preserving this incredibly important historic and natural paradise. The jungle here is still teaming with colourful birds and the awesome howler monkeys who rule over this ancient kingdom.
