For my first real post, I’d like to make a plug for this year’s Tulane Maya Symposium, to be held March 20-23. The theme is “On the Maya Trail: Ancient Travelers, Epic Voyages.” There are some great speakers lined up, including the keynote, Dr. Karl Taube. Be sure to check out my workshop on Maya patron deities Sunday afternoon! Go to http://mari.tulane.edu/TMS/ for more information.
I visited Chichinhitza in December and I thought of you. It was amazing!! The Maya are a lot of fun to learn about.
