Thank you very much, j.c.! It was of course a very hot day, and all the tourists were more or less scampering from tree to tree to find a shred of shade. We came on a day trip from the original Xpu-Ha Palace, and it was one of the best experiences my wife and I have ever shared. But as with almost every Maya site, it should be visited--and photographed--again and again!
Interesting photo of the fortress. LIKE! / GEFÄLLT MIR! +++ Jürgen grüßt Dich aus Frankfurt am Main / Jürgen greets you from Frankfurt-upon-Main (Germany)
I was also in Nairobi in 1991 and passed this area many times from our "hotel" on Latema Road. I don't have any photos of this part of town, so it is good to see what it looked like. I imagine it is very different today!
Amigo omidka, muchas gracias por tu amable visita. Saludos.
No, it's a lighthouse on an island near to Cabrera...
Sir Francis Drake (reputedly) landed at what is now called Drake's Bay, looking for a place to careen his ships, besides reprovisioning them. He had brought along a couple captured Spanish Manilla galleons as well as the Golden Hinde.
Ironically, he sailed right past the Golden Gate and missed San Francisco Bay completely. (There was no bridge there at the time.) Historians guess that the Golden Gate was probably shrouded in a fog bank when he passed the Farallones the first time.
But if his men explored Marin County how did they not see the Bay from the top of a ridge?
You have to wonder how different the history of North America might have been if Drake had wandered into San Francisco Bay and brought the news of it back to England. (That might be the bay we call Drake's Bay now.)
