then you'll know more about Palenque and what, when, where, "happened" in this magical place... too much mystery in this place, many theories, you may have a glimpse of what may happen when someone local explain it to you

We are currently travelling through Central America and have visited many Mayan historical sites / ruins. We have Palenque at the top of the list. Must take the time to stroll these ruins.
