So if I'm being all twitchy, why post a photo? First, because normal people often post a photo of themselves when they start a blog. If I'm going to pretend that I'm a normal person, then I need to act like a normal person. Second, no one is reading this, so it doesn't matter. Third, because the photo is a particularly appropriate one for this blog, since it confirms my status as a seasoned world traveler with a lot of experiences to bring to bear on whatever I'm writing about.
The photo was taken at some Mayan ruins in Campeche, Mexico. I took the stairs all the way to the top, two at a time. It was a pretty unbelievable view, and a rather remarkable experience. These particular ruins were among the smaller ones that have been reclaimed from the forest, but still an amazing place.
