Mesoamerican Artifacts

Guess where I went:

(a) An Island of the coast of Belize
(b) The Tikal ruins in Guatemala
(c) Mexico City's Airport

If you read my blog, that was just too easy: C.

At Mexico City's Benito Juarez airport there's an entire display room dedicated to Mayan and Aztec artifacts and photographs. The pieces chosen are from the sites that are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

This one is from Chichen Itzá.

There are 17 original sculptures, 4 replicas, 30 pictures, and several armed guards.

Definitely not the same as trekking through the jungle, but a very nice treat just before leaving. This particular exhibition will be around until October.


  1. Ooooooh, Mexico...what a nice idea to actually have something edifying and beautiful in an airport...I spent eight hours because of delays in the Philly airport last time I flew to Mexico, and it was like being trapped in a particularly cheesy mall....

  2. LOL A lot of airports *do* have that feel. DFW is no exception.


Thanks for the comment!


The NONEXISTENT Rockway Press Short Story Contest

Rockway Press never actually posted the winners of the 2007 contest. Their site has entirely disappeared, and they're on the Preditors and Editors list.
