Maya Field Workshop – Report #2 


Nine miles to the west of Antigua, “Fuego” is famous for being almost constantly active at a low level. That’s Fuego on the left with an eruption in progress rising and Acatenango on the right.  This was shot from the rooftop garden of our hotel, El Meson de Antigua.

Report #1 – Vicki and I have arrived in Antigua, Guatemala at the beginning of our awesome journey to the iconic Maya sites of Copan, Honduras and Quirigua, Guatemala. Many of our Mayanists friends are here and enjoying the beauty of Antigua before trekking to Honduras. Ann Stuart and brother, David Stuart are here as our hosts for the Maya Field Workshops. I’ll be posting pix and video between now and March 20.


Susan Dutcher and Erica Raven greet us in Antigua’s Parque Central.
