Day 16: Finally at Tikal

4:30am start, 6:00am arrival at Tikal. Overcast. No chance of any good morning sun for pictures. Was a bit disappointed because I knew I wouldn’t be seeing the visual I had imagined in my head: awesome stone temples rising above the jungle canopy surrounded by mysterious mist and drops of gold from the rising sun.
Was pondering all morning about returning again the next day for that morning shot but by noon when we’ve explored all there is to the site, I was already thinking about our next destination – the caves of Lanquin.
