Cortes’ Palace!

Yeeeeahh….great picture to start with huh? Gosh… FAIL!

(I took most of the pictures….that’s why I’m not in most of them πŸ˜€ )

Okay, so these are some photos of our tour around the Palace of Cortes.

A dead person.

They think it might have been either and indigenous or a priest of Cortes and his family.

.

Umm, Misty took this pic without warning, quick and sudden…..that’s why we all look so cool!…. πŸ˜€

.

Mummified Mammoth leftovers….

.

Some ginormicous (whatever, I just invented that word) Mammoth bones.

.

Arrowheads!

.

Everybody listening to our guide…

.

These columns made of wood that are on the roof are like 500 years old! Cool huh?

.

Lena and the boys checking the arrowheads out.

.

Part of what is left of the pyramid the palace was built on.

.

Outside.

.

Some little clay figures.

.

the kids and our guide

.

This is really nasty: the Mayans/Aztecs used to cut of the head and the legs of their captives, slit their torso and get their heart out while it was still beating as a sacrifice to their gods……ughhhh scary huh?

.

More pottery

This was to put incense in.

.

They had tattoos in those day! NIIICE!

AAAAnd even more explanation.

Emperor Maximilien’s carriage.

.

Outside.

.

The city bellow.

.

Some cool chapel. (one of the very first in Mexico)

.

Okay, so our tries at group shots were a definite….FAIL!

(blame our guide!) ha ha ha

A wheel…don’t remember what it was for….

.

Machinery of the very first clock in Mexico.

With this neat picture I’ll end my post.

Stay tunned for part 2!

I was to lazy to put the rest of the pictures now…..

    Yep, that same Cortez!
    Yeah, funny to watch, but scary in real life! Sometimes the losers were sacrificed and even other times the winners were the ones sacrificed. Not a lot of incentive to win huh? hahaha
