Saturday November 9th On the road to Antigua.

After our morning devotion we have bordered a van for Antigua. We made a change in plan and took a different route stopping on the way at a Mayan ruin. The grounds of the ruin were larger than I had anticipated although the pyramid type structures were small, around thirty feet in height. It was quite pleasant to walk around the grounds. The domestic or palace structures were foundations only. Apparently the walls and upper structure had been adobe with fresco paintings on the interior and did not survive. There was a museum adjacent the site but eve3rything was in Spanish. On of the displays was that of human skulls and the surgical instruments they used to perform brain surgery.
