Another place now, Labna. There were several sites where we didn't stop. It was Hot and we were Tired. Here you can see the 'sacbe', the elevated ceremonial road (also called white roads because they were paved with crushed limestone, which you can catch a glimps of in this picture) that at one time connected all these cities together.

Here is a practically unbelievable fact. I say fact because I read it in many sources. These guys never attached a wheel to a cart. On top of which they had not one large domesticated animal. No carts, no wheelbarrows, no horse or oxen. These guys used nothing but human muscle to conquer and enslave their neighors, build their cities, farm land to feed a growing population. Whooo.
