This History Break Brought To You By...

Playing in the background: Can't tell. Really tired and everything sounds fuzzy.

Hey, I stumbled across this while I was looking for a decent terrain map of El Salvador (the real-life stand-in for my fictional San Sebastian). In the third book, Our Heroes end up in Chalchuapa, where (in both fiction and real life) some Mayan pyramids were discovered in recent years. They've long since been covered up by soil and plant growth over the centuries, so they're being dug - very carefully - out of the growth and studied by anthropologists.

Here's a pic of a pyramid half-covered and half not. Very cool. Saw one of these close up roundabouts 1996 and it's kind of an eerie sight.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, did anybody catch the first ep of "Surviving Disaster" on Spike yesterday? That was awesome. If you ever need to know how to take a plane back from hijackers, or if you just like to write really violent fight scenes, you will want to see this show. Next week we'll be escaping a burning building, kids. Now that could come in handy someday.
