It's only 91 steps to the
temple platform above. Yet the steps are pretty steep and the stones are wet.
Besides, it's 90 degrees in the shade, the humidity is at 100 %, and I perspire
more then most. I smile at my wife Lee and start the dash up. I stop about 10
steps short to catch my breath. Twenty seconds later I'm at the top.
Breathless I peer across the
the tree tops. There are several nearby structures rising above the jungle
canopy but short of this one. I wave down to Lee, she doesn't do them all.
Wiping the sweat from my face, I reach for my flashlight and step inside.
Entering the porthole, I feel as though I've traveled thirteen hundred years
into the past.
It's always like this. Since 1983 I have walked these sacred grounds,
climbed these steep steps, and touched these ancient stones. My wife, Lee,
joined the adventure in 1995. Together we wish to share some of these journeys
