This Page is Under Construction

Come back soon! Maybe not tomorrow, but soon.  Obviously, we are a little short on content at the moment.  We are busy with our new digital image collection!  See our web page for more information.  In the meantime, enjoy this photo of Toni the dog, taken by Elaine in July 2007 at Uxmal, in the Yucatán.  We had encountered him the evening before at our hotel and worried about him, wondering where this poor, sweet, homeless guy slept at night.  The next day, as we stood in the Nunnery with our guide, Jorge Mex, the dog reappeared.  Jorge said, "That's Toni - he lives here.  The guides here named him after our dear friend Antonio, because he is such a kind dog."  We felt much better knowing that Toni had a name and loved ones, and later that afternoon we were happily surprised to find him snoozing inside the temple at the top of the Great Pyramid.
