I thought about her and I, staying the luxurious eco-tourism resort she had found for us, Chaa Creek, it was called. There, we would live together, eat together, and experience our own tiny adventure together. Nothing had me more excited than the possibility of seeing real honest-to-goodness Maya ruins. When we were kids, my sister and I would play computer games that taught us about the ancient world of the Maya. Since then, their intricate civilization has fascinated me.
