Mexico: Mayan apocalypse tourism

While some stock up on salt, flashlights, and thermos, Mexico’s enjoying a tourism boom:
Mayan apocalypse: panic spreads as December 21 nears
Fears that the end of the world is nigh have spread across the world with only days until the end of the Mayan calendar, with doomsday-mongers predicting a cataclysmic end to the history of Earth.

Meanwhile in Mexico, where the ancient Mayan civilisation flourished, the end time has been seen as an opportunity. The country has organised hundreds of Maya-themed events, and tourism is expected to have doubled this year.

Two things:

  1. The world’s not going to end on December 21, 2012.
  2. You better get your Christmas shopping done.

For that, Amazon has a wonderful selection for everyone on your list, and if you buy through my link, you help support this blog.

Thank you!
