remnants of another world
This picture gives a great look into two past cultures. Clearly it was a tea-table or garden sitting place of sorts. Here is where the house-staff, workers, or owners themselves took the time to sit and enjoy their surroundings. However, the table and chairs are far more than that. It was brought to our attention that the columnar chairs definitely had the look of a mayan pillar base, indicating the past life of the region. I am constantly amazed at the utilization of the mayan culture and environment by that of the past european conquest. This is not the only example, many of the churches in each town are built upon what once was a mayan pyramid, hence their height in respect to the village.
