A NEW BEGINNING......
|Traditional Maya Fire Ceremony|
|Enjoying a nice cup of tea!|
All the Maya sites throughout Latin America were ready for the big celebrations, and here in the beautiful Cayo District of Belize, Caracol was the main event. Tom and I, along with some friends attended the festivities. It was fabulously organized and I wanted to recognize that, from the campsites where you set up your tent, to the activities, to the food, everything was perfect!
Dr. Jaime Awe, the Director of our Institute of Archeology, gave a power point presentation during a Traditional Maya dinner, and gave a special tour of Caracol to all present during the afternoon.
At 2.30am, a procession of Mayan drums and chanting went through the campsite and at 4am the traditional Maya Fire Ceremony was held in the plaza at the bottom of the pyramids. It was beautiful. The Shamans prayed and gave their blessings to those who requested it. The sun rose and all was perfect with the world.
It was an unforgettable experience which will remain engraved in my mind forever. Fantastic, surreal, mystical were some words used by guests who attended, and it truly was!
All of us at Mystic River Resort would like to wish all our guests, past, present and future a wonderful Holiday Season, and may New Beginnings be had for us all.
