We spent last week in the Yucatan Peninsuala. We took an all-day excursion to Chichen Itza and Ek Balam. Chichen Itza was a bucket item for me and climbing the main temple at Ek Balam was one for my husband. It was quite the day, ending with a refreshing dip in an underground cenote and authentic Mexican dinner. This building, the Temple of Kukulcán, is one of the most famous archeological structures of North and Central America. It was built sometime between 750 and 900 AD and is one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World. Chichen Itza was one of the largest cities in the Mayan world, and archeologists believe it had a diverse population.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) OF SOMETHING ANCIENT.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography. Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.

That’s interesting Nancy
I didn’t know it was one of the seven wonders! I’ve never been to Mexico
There are seven wonders of the ancient world and seven of the modern world. I’m not sure why this is in the modern world category. Maybe because it’s AD and not BC.
I’ll have to look at the modern ones
This was.an incredible site we visited. So beautiful. Makes me want to return again.
that’s terrific…so happy you had a good time.
You had quite an adventure, I can see why it was on your bucket list 🙂
On my bucket list…
Wow! One of the seven wonders?
Seven modern wonders. There are seven ancient wonders and seven modern wonders. I think to be considered an ancient wonder, it had to be built before Christ was born.
Thank you Nancy Merrill for the information
