The clown of Palenque

It’s difficult standing in a place like the Maya ruins of Palenque, in the Chiapas-region south in Mexico, and trying to visualize how it all was and how it all looked like, bustling with life, houses and people, over a thousand years ago. Now the jungle has swallowed it all up, almost, and just some of the reconstructed buildings give a slight impression of how it all might have been a long, long time ago. Before the Mayas left the city, before the jungle claimed it’s space back.

Clown is the wonderful Hope, the clown of Palenque, from the United States.
