The latest High Definition video from Jason and Aracely at TwoBackpackers.com features my favorite Mayan ruins – Tikal in Guatemala. It looks like they had mistier weather than I did, however the video certainly captures what it feels like to be there – climbing the ruins and the rickety staircase up Temple 4, which actually looks like a newer version of the one I used (below).
One of my favorite aspects of Tikal is the abundance of wildlife, especially the colorful tropical birds. While I was there in 2006, I still had an old 35mm film camera, so my best attempts at bird photography left much to be desired.
