Ruinous treasures

Ruinous treasures

Here is an image of a typical building within Inah. From my perspective, this is one of the less studied ruins of the bunch within Mexico. Although there is mention of ongoing projects among the ruins, I am sure that the mob of tourists within the area deters any serious work on the zone. In any case, there are some places here where the original stucco is still clinging to the walls of the buildings. Stucco is a clay-like material that is spread over the rocky wall construction in order to allow for the building to be painted. In some locations you can find some really great examples of this practice, especially at Uxmal.

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!
