What the Jungle Left Behind

The Mayan ruins at Coba make a fantastic complex of ancient history being uncovered from the jungle. Visiting was like being in Raiders of the Lost Ark. We saw the base of a tree sprout up atop a corridor next to a Mayan temple, and replaced the stone roof with its own roots. It was surreal to walk in the corridor with ancient stone walls being roofed by the "newer" jungle.
