I’m leaving forever! I love you all and thank you for all your support and especially your friendships! Tim, Jay, Tyler, William, Doug, Sean, Jack, Patrick, Ryan, Jorge, Andy - to name a few - you guys were my treasure while here and I’m so thankful that I’ll be able to carry your friendships beyond this twitter life which has come to an abrupt end. To Oni Press and my favorite creators, I wish you all nothing but the best. I wish I could have had the economic leverage to support you more than just with my words, something that will always haunt me and something I hope to rectify one day. I will always love comics but it’s high time I move on to bigger things. So long and farewell, my people! Don’t forget to shine!!!
The Mayan Tikal National Park, inhabited from the 6th century B.C. to the 10th century A.D.
UNESCO World Heritage official description:
In the heart of this jungle, surrounded by lush vegetation, lies one of the major sites of the Mayan civilization. The ceremonial centre contains superb temples and palaces, and public squares accessed by means of ramps. Remains of dwellings are scattered throughout the surrounding countryside.
The ruined city reflects the cultural evolution of Mayan society from hunter- gathering to farming, with an elaborate religious, artistic and scientific culture which finally collapsed in the late 9th century. At its height, AD 700-800, the city supported a population of 90,000 Mayan Indians. There are over 3,000 separate buildings dating from 600 BC to AD 900, including temples, residences, religious monuments decorated with hieroglyphic inscriptions and tombs. (read more)
