But Those Mayans Are Ready

Not to miss out on a chance to make some money off the suckers tourists, Yahoo! News, the Mayans of Quintana Roo (Home to Cancun and Chichenitza) are ready.

Chichen Itza Mexico Day 5Unlike enthusiasts of other doomsday theories who suggest putting together survival kits, southeastern Mexico, the heart of Maya territory, plans a yearlong celebration.

It's selling the date, the Winter Solstice in the coming year, as a time of renewal. Many archeologists argue that the 2012 reference on a 1,300-year-old stone tablet only marks the end of a cycle in the Mayan calendar.

"The world will not end. It is an era," said Yeanet Zaldo, a tourism spokeswoman for the Caribbean state of Quintana Roo, home to Cancun. "For us, it is a message of hope."
Good thinking.

I wonder if they need any of that water?
