‘Wonder’ why

20130105-154017.jpg

A Hyundai santro, and loads of animated conversations to find directions got us to the wonder of world called chichen-itza. Ugly lizards, rows of small shops, bunch of humans, blazing sun, clear blue sky, and dry dust give it company through the day. Sturdy stones placed one over the other to give it a pyramid shape.And One wonders from a distance if this really qualifies to be a man made wonder..and when you get closer, the monument starts talking to you – you clap your hands in front of it, you hear it cry like a wolf.you move to a side, and suddenly the edges of the monument reveal serpents in the shadow that it casts. The monument stands witness to the Mayan age that created it to the ones where people make money out of it.
