Archaeological remains at "Las Americas" residential development

One of the neat things about living in a place that has so much history (such as Yucatan) is that you are constantly running in to artifacts, buildings and even customs of a distant past. Today I went out for a walk in my neighborhood to photograph the remains of a couple Mayan structures as well as the ruins of an abandoned colonial hacienda (similar to a serfdom). From what I can tell the pre-hispanic settlement was probably a satellite town of Komchen (sometimes spelled with a C) which dates from proximately 500 DC. The remains of the hacienda seem to be from the XVII century and were part of San Antonio Hool.
Also, this is my 200th blog entry on so HORRAY!
