Weekly Photo Challenge: Unexpected

Unexcavated Mayan Ruin.webThis is a partially excavated pyramid in Costa Maya, Mexico. It was totally unexpected to come across this.

Think the unthinkable … expect the unexpected … believe the unbelievable.

Long Street grate sign.web

While trying to find the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda we came across these unexpected things.

This street sign was on the sidewalk. It could easily be missed. I suppose that’s why we were lost. We couldn’t find the street signs. This explains it.

Red Hydrant - Antigua.web A fire hydrant submerged into the concrete. It didn’t seem possible that a hose could be fit on it in the event of a fire.

Sewer grating.web Since I am coordination challenge, I almost stepped into this unusual sewer opening. I wonder if there would have been a hospital or doctor nearby … probably not … we couldn’t find people to ask for help.

It was an adventure we enjoyed … and … are still talking about.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands has challenged us this wee to find something – Unexpected – to join in – http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/22/photo-challenge-unexpected/

    • Oh, yes we did explore the pyramid and others that were there. We took a tour bus as it was 1 1/2 hours from the ship we were cruising on. The guide was of the Mayan culture. My husband’s grandfather was an archeologist so we enjoy these types of things.
      Happy you enjoyed it. ~~~~~ : – )


      • I really did! Once we went to Cozumel on a cruise and before the tequila and the jewelry stores we were wandering in a not so remote little patch of jungle and found a smaller version and what I remember mostly is being eaten alive by the mesquites. Our guide was not so informative as your husbands dad !


        • Oh, no – my husbands grandfather was an archeologist. Reading and going to places that are being excavated are his hobby. His grandfather has passed on. My husband developed a like for the subject through his conversations with him.
          Our guide was a natïve Mayan. He spoke the language and was a historian of his culture. He was very informative without being boring. A must see for anyone taking a cruise that stops at Costa Maya, Mexico.

          p.s. the mosquitos were killers at this one too. ~~~~~~~~~ : = O


          • Shouldn’t everyone have a Archeologist in the family!!!! The next time I will go prepared and slathered up from head to toe : )

    • I’m glad I missed the opening too. Some of the islands don’t maintain their streets very well.
      I had no idea when I took the photos that they’d be useful. My main reason for taking them was their
      unexpected places. ~~~ : – )
      Have a GREAT week !!!!
