What memories "The Real Indiana Jones" by Alan Weisman (Oct. 14), brought back.
While traveling in Guatemala, I had a chance to fly into the jungle to view ancient ruins. In a small, four-passenger plane, we flew over the jungle for some time, wondering where a landing could be made. Soon we found a "hole" in the jungle, apparently cut through trees, and set down on a small airstrip.
A small encampment of archeologists from Guatemala City was located within the ruins. We were invited to lunch and a tour of their findings. It was most inspiring and thrilling to walk among one of history's great mysteries.
Often, I have thought about this experience, and I wish to thank Weisman for his excellent writing and to extend my good wishes to all of those attempting to solve the mystery.
