Join George Jabol as he shares a slide presentation of his 2010 expedition to four Central American countries, where he spent two weeks visiting El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, and Belize in search of ruins of the once flourishing Mayan civilization. With a dozen fellow travelers, George explored Mayan locations at Joya de Cerén in El Salvador, Copán in Honduras, the famous sites of Tikal and Yaxha in Guatemala, and Lamanai in Belize. We will visit open-air markets and see how modern descendants of the Maya live today. Other highlights include the Spanish colonial city of Antigua, a macadamia nut plantation, a death-defying zip line flight above Guatemala’s trees, and a courageous ride on a Guatemalan chicken bus. Be prepared to see ancient historic places, gorgeous scenery, and beautiful citizens in a distinctly different world.
George Jabol received his B.A. degree from Ohio’s Muskingum University, and a Ph.D. in English language and literature from the University of Michigan. Fully retired now from a career with the federal government, George creates photographic slide shows as a way to remember his travels and share them with others.
