Because the world did not end on December 22, 2012, we are planning a trip to the heart of ancient Mayan civilization, Guatemala. We’ve started the research, and have been asking friends for any tidbits of info they may be able to contribute.
One buddy told me that Star Wars filmed part of Episode IV at Tikal, which is Guatemala’s most famous Mayan ruin. As a child of the 70s, this really turned my crank. I mentioned it to maybe 3 other people – they all already knew!
And seeing that we’ll be travelling with an almost 6 year old, I am guessing that our visit to Tikal will need to involve at least one light sabre fight.
