More Snippets From Lamanai

After a sweaty walk into town for fresh tropical fruit this morning, we repaired to the cottage just before a refreshing rain began to fall.  I decided to take advantage of the enforced idleness to throw a few more pics at the Blog.

Laman-aiin, the Mayan name means "Submerged Crocodile".  The modern name Lamanai, bestowed by the early Spanish Conquistadores, means "Submerged Insect".  Not nearly as imposing.
