I came across an interesting ceremony a the top of the Nohoch Mul "big mound" ruin at Coba. Reminded me of being in Sedona to tell you the truth :). After talking to one of the Shamans he explained he was hired to perform a ceremony and there was quite a resurgence of interest among the upper-classes in mayan religion and ceremony. Quite chic to have mayan baptisms, etc.
This tree on the picture was / is what the Maya;s use(d) for make their drinks with alcohol. Not only they drunk it for having a drink with friends, but the tree is also medical relief. I think its like the Mamaguana in the Dominican Republic..... strong and good for everything (like the Dominican say : Potentia !!!.....)
I love this way of making a person know where to go. Typpical Mexican way...
A little sombrero for the man and a little nitted woman on the ladies. Lucky for the ones that can read.... is the LADIES and GENTLEMAN on top of the door.
We have been told that its normal for Maya's that at the age of 14 (or younger) they get their first child. And they will have about 10 till 15 children in livetime.
Pfffft and that in a hammock!
Dont think Maya's use the hammock the way we use it, thats bad for your back, they lay in lenght in the small part of the hammock!
Dont smoke to close to the peoples houses, besides its strow which they build it off and i dont think they are insured, there is washing outside to dry.
And i dont think they have fabricsoftener.... but smelling like an old sigaret is not they wanna smell.
