By no means. The wood was usually a walkway across a grid that was marked off by letter (depth) and number (horizontal location). A smaller site from where I took the last picture is clearer:



Now here is that same site as before (just a bit up the road) where you can clearly see one guy working his section of the "grid." Apparently, he found something as there is a person standing there noting where he found it as well as a guy on that metal platform next to him on a computer marking it on a 3D grid (you can only see his foot really):



Wide view of same site:



Maybe the guy found......this! AHHHHHHHHH!

What's placed on the floor at the bottom of the dig? Looks like wood flooring in the picture. Archeologist haven't gone that posh have they?

Nothing, really. Plaza Mayor. Big square, pic taken facing the bell (front). Right to the RIGHT is the image of Franco. Only one of the leaders covered with eggs! LOL!
I have a great panoramic shot that I hand-carried back from the regional gov. rep. of Salamanca. Stopped off at a Hobby Lobby to have it framed right away. Really kewl.

I studied there in HS. Love the city. Photo, obviously, after the game (facing the corner where Franco's image is mounted, BTW).

Damn, that plaza filled up for the night game and were they EVER for Germany!! Hey, I got the folks pulling for Brazil some free driinks as consolation. Least the mesero could do, I say!!

As long as I am on a posting streak. Valladolid, Spain. I got into one of the biggest dig sites in the world. they dig about a year as they get more fossils than they can processes through the rainy season. Yeah, of course I jumped under the "do not cross" wire! All those white things below are people digging. Structure above is what they already dug away to and pulled down to prevent a cave-in.

Right next to the Fox and across from Comerica Park. Hockeytown (got me a new puck!). Anyone who speaks shit about Detroit has no idea of the city itself. Ooooooh, dangerous looking, no?

At least I can still post! After the Tigers' game (kicked ass vs. Rockies), my friends and I wandered over to Hockeytown. Look what we passed!







There were actual commercials on the telly!!!! DAMN, I wish I were still there.

Deportation of a U.S. Citizen. HA! Well, since you have no actual country to be deported to, I suppose they'll have to send you to one of our many tropical U.S. owned paradises. Pick Virgin Isles.

That selling coconuts by the sea dream could have been within your reach if you played your cards right.

I've got a couple of shots of the roaming JP tuning fork in Spain but my post now is more because I couldn't find (aka. didn't care to look too hard) for the "happy / made you laugh" thread. Best one? I get a "Homeland Security" form from Air Europa (AVOID!!!) to fill out the other day. As i speak Spanish, they gave me the Spanish form insisting that I have to fill it out (erm..I didn't a month earlier diving in Honduras). The best question? Translation: do you intend to work in the USA?" Not bad but was a charged question lobbed in with others: "Have you ever been deported?" "Have you ever spent more than 5 years in jail?" Ummmm....what do I mark? Yeah, I kinda work in the USA but no to the others (and there were more). Do I mark "No" and not have to work again? lol 

Best part was that I had to sign away my rights to be deported if I lied. Where the hell would they deport me to?!? Guantanamo?! Haiti?!? HAAAAA!!!!

At least the "aduanero" had the sense to crumple it up and throw it away before I could make a comment. Growing up so close to Canada, you learn quickly that they have NO sense of humor. Especially at 4am when I passed through.

Okay, that crab and JP cross shot is pretty cool.

My view every morning. I highly recommend the isle of Útila.




My view at night.


Big friggin' hermit crab! Metal fan!

Diving off the island of Utila, Honduras, compadres. Roatan last year was cool but this is just a little slip of an island surrounded by coral reefs. What a blast! Talk about an island paradise. Long commute including a cessna plane / sweat bucket with props but worth the trip!

Hope to see some whale sharks this time around!

Oh, I have a ton but just not from this trip. You can go up to Corcovado (the statue of Christ) but just to the platform - not a hollow statue like the Statue of Liberty, for example. You can also go up Pão de Azúçar. Been to both a few times in the past - once for me and another when I had a friend come to run the Rio marathon. Usually, you do both attractions the same day as they are in Rio. The pictures I posted are from across the bay and it is a long commute thanks to the traffic. The trifecta of attractions is to include the infamous stadium, Maracaná. You normally have to hire a driver as the drug lords rule the spots, especially the drive up to Christ, and kidnappings and random violence are not uncommon.

I'll dig up some old pictures when I get a chance. The statue is absolutely huge. Keep in mind that those shots are from across the bay and that gives you an idea. The museum is on the side of Niterói. Corcorvado and Pão de Azúçar are WAY off in the distance 25-30km at LEAST.

@Guido. You know I'm not religious so I was never interested in that statue but the view from up there has to be incredible. I've seen photos from up close but wasn't sure if general public was able to go to the top. If so any pics?
