Copan Photos

To the ruins!

Here´s some photos of the ball court. According to the guide, the captain of the losing team would be sacrificed to the gods!

And heres one of the sacrificial alters. The channel is for the blood to run down so that it can easily be collected...

These steps record the history of Copan.

More ruins...

Much more detailed carving here compared to Tikal.

And lots of colourful birds.
