The Mayan City State of Palenque
Mexico

No tripod nor monopod allowed inside the ancient ruins I was pleasantly surprised by my freehand approarch - this panorama still comes out satisfactorily.

The massive pyramid on the right is the Temples of Inscriptions where the remains of the Mayan King Pakal (799AD-?) was once housed - now his body with its much-ornated scrophagus the lid iconography of which depicting what one would interpret as a kind of outer-space travel is now housed in the more modern museum near the entrance.

The unmistakable Tower (Torre) jutting out from the walled building on an elevated platform on the left is where the Palace group is - a maze of interconnecting corridors and rooms that probably serves both administraive and residential purposes.

Mer om 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.
