  spooky feelings in Tikal
by JenniferG

Tikal has about 7 temples, a lot of them located on hills. Some of the original stairs are so unsafe that they build wooden stairs so that you can still climb them.
The main site is the Grand Plaza where the biggest temples are located. Around this plaza the other temples are located separately in the bushes. Just walk around, follow the signs and enjoy nature as well!

I have made so much more pictures here in Tikal but unfortunately the shadows were so harsh that the contrasts were to big on my photos. Big black spots all over... it's really a shame.

When I saw the sight on the picture it came to me as a really spooky feeling. The full moon is already coming up... really surreal...
