Location: Flores, Guatemala

On our way onto Belize and we stop off in Flores for a few relaxing days and one hot humid day at the fantastic nearby Mayan ruins of Tikal.

Like the other recent ruins this one is also deep in the jungle, but it is crammed with high pyramids that peak above the tree line...all you have to do is climb up one to see them.

38m high Temple II (Temple of Masks) which faces Temple I on the Great Plaza.

On the last night in Flores we got an impromtu MotorX show from these guys who just turned up and started jumping off the steps, doing burn outs etc... Couldn't tell whether it was orgainsed or not as no police presence or barricades etc...but you wouln't expect that sprt of thing over here!

Jiodes and the 'streetmums' who fed us everynight in Flores - figured by the end we should have been eating in the houses!
