And now for some more Yucatecan wildlife!

Yesterday (Tuesday) Roque, Raul and I got back in to the car for another day in the Yucatecan countryside. This time we visited Yaxuna, as well as a couple cenotes :) It was a productive day... I got this wonderful photo of the Mut Mut (Pajaro Toh) you see bellow. Also noteworthy (and fairly rare) is the photo of the Geococcyx velox (AKA Road Runner, but sorry no Coyote!) and a little brown bat :) Hope you enjoy the photos!

One of many un excavated pre-hispanic structures surrounding Xtogil cenote.

Yesterday I made my way with Roque and Raul (a couple old friends from grade school) to the Mayan archaeological site of Chacmultun. The site is located in the municipality of Tecax, on the foothills of the Puuc valley and is truly impressive for its architectural beauty and gorgeous landscape. Chacmultun is representative of Puuc style architecture and is comparable to other sites in the area such as Kabah and Labna, however perhaps due to its out of the way location it is seldom visited by anyone... perhaps in great part due also to the fact that it is not an official part of the "Puuc route". If you ever want to take a daytrip to this wonderful site feel free to hit me up for some more info, hope you enjoy the pics.

There is no place like home!

After a 30 some hour trip without a wink of sleep I finally arrived in Merida last Tuesday! It always really wonderful to come home, but this time seemed extra sweet... although perhaps bittersweet as Jeanette was not able to join me. I have not gotten much sleep this week since my jet-lag has been compounded with that fact that I am now working nights... but I will get the hand of it soon I think... and besides I quite like my job and really like that its portable :)
Anyway here are two very different batches of photos I took this week... the first is obviously from Norway (near Jeanettes house) and the second are from Santa Elena and a hacienda called Yaxcopoil. Anyway I hope you enjoy the photos!

Godt av for nå Norge (Good bye for now Norway)

Well this will be my last post from Norway for a while. As you probably know if you follow this blog, I have been living in Norway with my wonderful girlfriend Jeanette and her family for the past six months... but now I will be returning to Merida for a while and getting some stuff sorted out. I will hopefully be back in Norway with Jeanette before to long but for now I am happy to be going home, seing my family and escpaing the bitter scandinavian winter! Anyway, enjoy the snowy pics! brrrrrr!

More woods arround Østfold

Here are some photos I took this week in the woods here in good ol Østfold commune. The weather has been getting a lot colder lately and the snow has really started to drop down... although I guess its not really that bad yet... and after all I will be back in the Yucatan fairly soon... so I guess I should enjoy the winter while I can! Hope you enjoy the photos :)
