(aka, Conrado Hinojosa's Home Page)
I created the first version of this home page in December, 1995, to see if I could do it using one of the WYSIWYG html editors that had been recently released into the marketplace. It worked smoothly for the most part and I learned quite a bit about the process of publishing on the Web. I recently completed a major remodel of my site using Adobe GoLive (circa July, 2001). The redesign employs the use of QuickTime slideshows. My thinking is that the slide show experience is more interesting than scrolling down pages to see photo images. This will continue to be a work in progress. I hope you find my pages informative and entertaining as well as useful.
The following areas, except for my résumé and NetShaman Productions, my web development practice, are accessible by clicking on the related navigation button at the top of each page or via the text links at the bottom of each page:
I have an interest in the Maya, their history, culture, and cosmology. This section includes information and commentary, a sampling of photographs and a few movies that I've taken during trips to various Maya sites including the following: Palenque in Chiapas; Uxmal, Sayil, Labna (the Maya Route), Chichen Itza, Yucatan and Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico; Antigua, Tikal, Lake Atitlan including Panajachel and nearby areas, the Church of Santo Thomás and the very colorful market at Chichicastenango. Also included are interesting links related to the Maya.
Being a former air-force brat who had the good fortune of living overseas, I've always had an insatiable travel bug. One of my favorite places to visit is Brazil. Brazil has a wonderful culture, people, and some of the most wondrous natural places on earth to visit. This section includes pictures from my fishing/camping trips to the Pantanal and the Rio São Francisco in central Bahia.
On a more personal note, I used to play in a high school band called Los Santos Del Demonio (LSD) in Tachikawa, Japan (I was an Air Force brat) in the late 60's. I've been able to locate former band members except for one, Bob Patterson (singer). Thanks to the Internet and my high school website (Yamato High School), I recently found our missing drummer, Carl Brown. So I'd really like to find Bob Patterson to complete the group once again. Click on the band image to see a QuickTime slideshow of the LSD band. Click here for help and detailed information on QuickTime installation requirements. Now you can also see three LSD Band videos on YouTube:
