ucalien, your efforts are more than commendable. Thank you for all the hard work, and even though I have yet to form my own solid beliefs on all the
subjects you covered, I always appreciate someone like yourself contributing to my formation of those beliefs.
Have you had a chance to travel to any sites of relevance to this post?
I ask mainly because I will be going to Guatemala for 6 months to a year as part of the requirement to earn my degree in my current field of study.
I would love some suggestions regarding places that you find highly interesting, especially in the highlands as that is where a majority of my studies
will take place.
I know the school of world studies likes to make a few trips available to historically important sites, especially ancient ones. There is a good
chance I will have some influence on what some of those sites are.
I look forward to visiting the region as well as meeting and working with the local maya population extensively. I've always wanted to spend a good
amount of time down there, and though I won't be living the dream of digging up ancient remains for the first time in millenia, I am perfectly happy
learning from and about the only existing remains/descendants of a once vast and powerful culture.
Thanks in advance homeboy, and great post! This is the type of stuff that renews hope for and interest in ATS!!!
