Tomorrow we make the final arrangements for a trip to Tikal.
Tikal was the capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. Though monumental architecture at the site dates back as far as the 4th century BC, Tikal reached its apogee during the Classic Period, c. 200 to 900 AD. During this time, the city dominated much of the Maya region politically, economically, and militarily, while interacting with areas throughout Mesoamerica such as the great metropolis of Teotihuacan in the distant Valley of Mexico.
We'll spend two night in Flores on the island and travel by van to the Tikal site. We will also spend some time in Flores exploring this island city.
Today we received our hatch covers and new covers for our cockpit adjusting seats. So we are good to go now with comfort in the cockpit while sailing.
I'm starting to play with the GoPro and may create a private YouTube channel, I'm still pretty unknowing about all this video blogging stuff.
