"Both scared the hell out of me."

There's a great scene at the end of the film "The Lion in Winter". The king and queen are in the dungeons, having a moment of reflection.

"They're all around us, even now. You can see their eyes shining in the firelight."

The king stares at her for a moment, and then says "And so they can see ours."

I figure that some cultists have more to worry about from me than I do from them, at least if they want to become violent. If they want to be peaceful and polite then I'm just passing through.

dude, you have some balls. if i would've jaunted in there unaccompanied at all is debatable (i am, at heart, a city girl whose guard is always up for something terrible to happen right around the corner), but the fact that after seeing the scary "offerings" you still stayed a while... well, that's just crazy. : )

j-a

eeek!!!!!!

that is REALLY spooky. but i don't think it would have been santaria - don't they offer up the blood from a dying donkey or chicken or something like that? i speak not from personal experience but from my teacher's - she is a travel writer and she went to cuba to witness such an event.

Hi, your description of the ruins is dead-on, and as of about a month ago (Sept. 2005) the candles are still there.

A minor point though, these ruins are from the Zabriskie Cliff Dale estate. The Ringling estate was a couple of miles north, and there's not much left of that one but a couple of half-buried foundations and a stone bridge.

There are some more photos at this link , if anybody's interested.

viagra

In the ancient era, the viagra influence was nowhere to be found as the erectile dysfunction medication Viagra didn’t came into being at that time. Specific details on impotence and pre-viagra age inform us that in that period men relied on Unani, Chinese, Herbal and other medications to treat their erectile dysfunction. But with the arrival of the modern age, Viagra was manufactured and approved by the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as an effective treatment of erectile dysfunction and after that the drug emerged extremely successful in treating impotence in modern society. Other than erectile dysfunction, Viagra has also evolved as an effective medicine to treat pulmonary hypertension and other ailments and this has further increased the popularity of viagra in global society.
