Igunana, Got Your Back
An Green Iguana at rest amongst the ruins of the Uxmal archaeology site in Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula. Uxmal is one of my top Mayan sites from the dozen or so I’ve visited in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras over the last few years. It’s peaceful, massive in scale and an excellent realization of Puuc architecture among the ancient Maya. Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the Yucatán – home to the Mayan Riviera, a popular beach holiday spot for many people. I’ll post some more shots from my travels of the Puuc route shortly. In the meantime, enjoy the lizard – I quite like the similarities with the Bus Top image I posted a few days ago. What do you think – an interesting diptych in the making?
