Hundreds of stone balls have been documented in Costa Rica, ranging in size from a few centimeters to over two meters in diameter.but another people who came from Southeast Asia and the southern Pacific area.But recent research, including the Baja California study, indicates that the initial settlement of the continent was instead driven by who occupied Australia 60,000 years ago and then expanded into the Americas about 13,500 years ago, prior to Mongoloid people arriving from northeast Asia.The skulls from Baja California, which may date back only a few hundred years, have slender-looking faces that are different from the broad-cheeked craniums of modern Amerindians, the descendants of the Mongoloid people.Dubbed Eva de Naharon, or Eve of Naharon, the female skeleton has been dated at 13,600 years old.If that age is accurate, the skeleton—along with three others found in underwater caves along the Caribbean coast of the Yucatán Peninsula—could provide new clues to how the Americas were first populated.and hundreds more have been found all over the country. Hoopes The stone balls of Costa Rica have been the object of pseudoscientific speculations since the publication of Erich von Däniken’s Chariots of the Gods in 1971.One of the strangest mysteries in archaeology was discovered in the Diquis Delta of Costa Rica. Like the monoliths of the Old World, the Costa Rican quarry was more than 50 miles away from the final resting place of these mysteries. More recently, they have gained renewed attention as the result of books such as Atlantis in America- Navigators of the Ancient World, by Ivar Zapp and George Erikson (Adventures Unlimited Press, 1998), and The Atlantis Blueprint: Unlocking the Ancient Mysteries of a Long-Lost Civilization, by Colin Wilson and Rand Flem-Ath (Delacorte Press, 2001).
I’ve met a lot of people during my travels, but some of the most informative writers around are the other bloggers, expats and Panamanians. Because these people aren’t earning anything from the info they’re sharing.
We learn as much as possible from their successes and horror stories so that we can finally take off those training wheels and start pedaling our expat feet.
So, please, check out these other great bloggers’ sites.
My blog, “Let The Adventure Begin” is a blog about our new life living in the Highlands of Panama, in a beautiful small town called Boquete.
I began writing about our process from the very beginning, when we were still trying to decide what country would check off most of the things we knew would make us happy.
