Check out my photos here

Back again???

When I moved from Mexico back to Norway, I lost track  of many things, just focusing on my family, helping them to adapt well, so we could stay for a while. 

It has been very busy this first year with work, travels and my family.

I hope I can find time now, to write and upload photos to my blog.

It is a blast to blog from this altitude with my iPad.
I'm sorry that I cannot say the same about my mobile Internet provider, it sucks.
So this is now officially a let down.

But stay tuned cause I'm updating when I'm back at base.

Cantona, La casa del sol, Puebla Mexico

Cantona, La casa del sol....
is a Mesoamerican archaeological site in Mexico. It is located in the state of Puebla, on the border with Veracruz, about an hour's drive from the city of Puebla and about an hour and a half from Xalapa, Veracruz. Limited archaeological work has been done at the site, and only about 10% of the site can be seen. (There are opinions that only 1% has been uncovered).

 It was a fortified city with a high urbanization level at prehispanic times, probably founded by Olmec-Xicalanca groups towards the late Classical Period. Cantona sat astride an old trading route between the Gulf Coast and the Central Highlands and was a prominent, if isolated, Mesoamerican city between 600 and 1000 CE. It was abandoned after AD 1050. Its maximum apogee is placed at the epiclassical Mesoamerica period, that is, the period during which Teotihuacan ceased to be the main power center in the region and small regional states sought to gain control of the various trade routes. Cantona was one of these regional centers, and controlled Sierra Madre Oriental resources.

The prehispanic settlement area occupies approximately 12 km², distributed in three units, of which the largest is at the south, with a surface of five km² surface. In Cantona 24 ballgame courts have been discovered, more than in any other mesoamerican site, as well as a series of small pyramids. The Zaragoza obsidian mine is located nearby. It has an elevated Acropolis over the rest of the city in which the main buildings of the city were built. This was used for the ruling elite and priests, and was where the temples of the most important deities where located. A spectacular mesoamerican archaeological site, the largest prehispanic city yet discovered in Mesoamerica. The site comprises a road network with over 500 cobblestone causeways, more than 3,000 individual patios, residences, 24 ball courts and an elaborate acropolis with multiple ceremonial buildings and temples.

 These impressive buildings were constructed with carved stones (one atop the other) without any Stucco or cement mortar. Its population is estimated at about 80, 000 inhabitants at its peak. It is believed that trade was an important activity. It certainly was built with a definite urban design and walkways connecting each and every part of the city. The "First Avenue" is 563 meters in length. Cantona was contemporary of Teotihuacan. Its inhabitants were mainly agricultural farmers and traders, particularly for obsidian, obtained from Oyameles- Zaragoza mountains surrounding the city. Additionally, they may have been supplying the lowlands with a derivative of the maguey plant, pulque. After the XI Century Chichimec’s invasions, Cantona was abandoned.

 Stay tuned for more photos later today.

What Is the correct definition of "SWAGGER"

Quote from The MAN OF SWAGGER is the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of these things. The main reason for this is that someone with TRUE swagger does not need to announce to the entire room that he has swagger. The people around him just KNOW it, because of his aura and by the way he carries himself. An arrogant man thinks and acts as if he is superior to others, in turn, causing others to think badly of him and dislike him. But instead, a man with swagger looks to make others around him feel good. This makes him a desirable person in every way. People WANT to be in his presence, because he is fun, charismatic, pleasant and curiously different. He has an element of mystery as well, which is intriguing. His charisma is thoroughly enforced because he is well groomed, stylish, suave and a successful communicator. He is the definition of swagger. To top it all off, all the traits that he possess are NOT A BIG DEAL to him at all, but these same traits would be broadcast through a bull horn by an arrogant man, to the dismay and disdain of many. FINALLY... THE TRUE DEFINITION OF SWAGGER: 1. How one presents himself to the world, the ability to handle a situation with a sense of calm and uncanny grace. The ability to maintain a healthy level of self-confidence without appearing arrogant. 2. The seeming effortlessness to a person's admired style, the way they walk, talk and dress. 3. The inability to be easily shaken by anyone or anything. Peace brother sailingaction
