djnana I really like the Olmec head in #5 - and I think #2 looks like Gonzo on "Sesame Street"! You got some great shots from there!

SunflowerGirl Wow, great compositions and thanks for the history. I thought the Aztecs were the barbaric ones...guess they both were.

RayNvb Nice set. Is that temple more an altar than a temple as we would know it?
