Reading Material

I haven’t had much time to get out since we got back from the Yucatan so I’ve been amusing myself with various reading material. And in preparation for our trip to Antarctica next winter I’ve been doing research on the best reference guides. Just received the first two books today:

The Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife (2nd edition) – Highly recommend this one and hands down the absolute best field guide to all wildlife of the Antarctic continent and shelf.

Birds of Southern South America and Antarctica – A comprehensive field guide to all the bird species of South America and Antarctica.

Chichen Itza

We’re back from the Yucatán and had a great time visiting the many Mayan ruins scattered across the region. Perhaps the most exciting being Chichen Itza located in the middle of the Yucatán peninsula. It was fascinating to learn about the Mayan cultures and the incredible engineering that went into building the temples.
