One of the coolest things we did on this cruise was tour an ancient Mayan Ruin in Costa Maya. It's amazing how the archeologists have unearthed these things, and how well preserved they are. We also learned quite a bit about the old Mayan predictions of 2012, end of the world, etc. Apparently the Mayan descendants believe that the world isn't truly going to end (good deal, right?) but that a time of change is coming, at least for their people. They believe that that change is coming in the form of a Mayan descendant coming into power again in their government. So, huh. I will take it, if it means the world isn't going to blow up or something.
