I spent a number of weeks following
archaeologists around the ancient Maya city of Palenque
in the jungles of Chiapas, Mexico. Never before had
I seen so many ruins in the half-light of the jungle.
And the howler monkeys roared at us like lions. There
is more mystery here than I had ever thought existed
on the planet. Whole Maya cities have yet to be discovered
in the jungles of Guatemala.
