Maya Adventure!

In December, Dr. Waring traveled to Guatemala and Honduras to visit several Maya sites! He visited the ruins of the Maya cities of Yaxha, Tikal, Quirigua, and Copan. He learned about jungle and jaguars, beans and maize, kings and calendars, pyramids and astronomy, turkeys and robollo, ball games and human sacrifice. In these images from Tikal, Waring surrenders atop the observatory in the Lost World, and pitches a shut out in the ball court next to the Jaguar Temple.
