remnants of another world

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.

Hi, I am just beginning a world adventure of my very own! My name is Tristan Davis Fralick and I am a nursing and social justice student from the central New York region. I really enjoy working with people and I have made it my goal to see as much of the world's cultures as possible to best understand and relate to the people that live all around us. In my free-time I enjoy hiking, biking, swimming, playing music, cooking, writing (obviously), and learning new things in any way that I can. This is a blog consisting of my travels past and present. I hope that you enjoy!
