The great temple

The great temple

This is a view from the base of the great temple. The previous picture was taken atop this nice stone hill. from the top you can see for miles. This is due to the fact that yucatan is basically flat as can be even in the hilly region of the puuc hills (southern Yucatan where Uxmal is located). The pyramid gives a real sense of power and location with its height and size. On the top are may representations of the water god chaac as well as many glyphs depicting parrots. This was my first look at a sizable ruin and I was very excited for the opportunity to climb.

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!
