Our guide to the ancient and vastly impressive junglebound Mayan temple site Tikal nudged us to ponder the question of how the people more than 2000 years ago were able to haul these massive stones here and erect the temples without the use of wheel. I would have pondered this if he hadnt had his hand half way down a taratula's hole prodding a big stick Steve Irwin style at the hairy beast inside trying to coax it out. Mainly I was thinking 'i have a big knife here to jam in your ears aswell if you arent quite getting enough of a kick out of that'. It was then we disregarded everything he said as insane mutterings and promptly wandered off into the undergrowth in search of sacrificial alters and howler monkeys via their poo, 'the fresher the better' apparently.
