I read Jungle of Stone book by William Carlsen just in time for my Mexico trip and I liked it. The book is about John Stevens and Frederick Catherwood as they both make their journey to Mexico and Central America in search of stones in Jungle and end up discovering Maya Civilization. Even the locals had no idea about this civilization and it is because of the expedition of these two men that the Europeans realized that western hemisphere had an advanced civilization which could match some of the ancient civilizations in the East.
For our next vacation, we have been planning to visit Mexico so I gathered all the books I had on Mexico in my TBR pile.I have been to the west coast of Mexico and this time the plan is to visit the east coast which has Mayan Ruins.
Here the books that I am planning to read before I visit –
One more country checked.. one more visa stamped.. Mexico 🙂 This was a sudden trip, totally planned but whether I was joining was undecided. Hubby had to go there for stamping and then I decided on the final day that I am joining him. Got visa stamped for Mexico, even though it was not necessary and we were all ready to go! Hubby did a lot of research and kind of came up with a research paper on do-s and don’t-s since I was also joining him. So we were all set to cross the border and enter Mexico 🙂
