If you have never gone to the Zócalo on the night of Sept. 15 to hear the "grito de independencia," then go! Learn how the Maya read signs from a local bird on how much it will rain each season. Afraid of bees? Or fascinated by their industry? Either way, dare to take the Co'ox Mayab tour to the bee farms in Sinanché. Don the protective gear they provide and see these amazing workers up close. Their honey is world famous. If you are not a native Spanish speaker, as a visitor you will be determined to find a way to communicate in Spanish; and as a new resident you have probably already signed up for Spanish classes. Why not push yourself to learn Maya? On page 9 our contributing writer Valentina Álvarez describes her experience...and tells us how the Maya use language in a different way from what you are used to. For her, it proved to be a life-changing experience. And never fear...your copy of Yucatán Today will be your faithful companion as you try all these new experiences!
