Why I want to experience the 2012 Maya Winter Solstice at Chaa Creek
I want to be a part of the New Years Eve celebration in Belize that is once in 52,000 years in the year of 2012. I want to experience the reflection of the end of the cosmic circle and celebration of a new beginning in this historical Winter Solstice.
I want to discover the artifacts of this fascinating place and be a part of this Maya culture celebration. I want to see the pyramid of Xumantunich and the sacred caves of Actun Tunichi Muknal, and the Royal Palace of Cahal Pech. I want to be a part of this reflection of time. It would be amazing to be in the heartland of the Maya during this time of completion of the great cycle of the 13th B’ak’tum and celebration of the new age.
I love history. I have studied the Mayan culture, and find it to be captivating that they were able to predict events and tell a story of the future that many years ago. It would be a trip of a lifetime to be in Belize for this historical event. I surely hope I am the lucky enough to win my way to such an awesome experience.
