Ball Play court in Chichen Itza, Mexico
Mexico

The Mayas used this Court for the sacred Ball Game. The best warriors fighted to play considering a great honour to win, as the winners were sacrified to the gods. The game could endure several days, as it finshed when the bal passed throug one of the stone rings, and the players could only touch ir with their hips...so difficult!

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
