Antigua's inframundo

There's something rather entertaining about the matter-of-fact way this Spanish TV panel discusses the espantos (and espantados) of La Antigua Guatemala:

They make La Llorona sound like a Japanese horror movie waiting to happen.

On a separate note, my American neighbour has just returned from a fact-finding mission to Tikal where he intends to return on December 23, 2012 for the end of the world.

Apparently he's not alone and some sort of event is definitely being laid on by the locals if not by the Almighty.

I wonder if anyone around here has considered just how many fast bucks are to made out of the credulous in roughly eighteen months' time. Guatemala should certainly position itself as ground zero.

At the very least there's an excuse for some serious end of Baktun cycle partying!
