If you have ever been to Mexico, you know that the Mayans had a major influence on many parts of the Mexican culture.
On a recent trip, I took my daughter to Ek’Balam, one of the best kept secrets in the Yucatán. The pyramid and peripheral buildings were in immaculate condition. We toured with the locals throughout the entire site. My daughter was in awe of its grandeur, she couldn’t comprehend how something could have been built so long ago, yet be in such pristine condition.
The sight of the rubble which once was part of the Elliott Lake Mall is extremely sobering to say the least. 2 lives were lost and countless other lives were changed forever on a sunny June afternoon in 2012.
If you were to go back to the summer of 1984 and ask the youthful version of myself if global warming was a problem…I would have pointed to the terrible summer I was having and the lack of time I was able to spend at Whitewater Beach in Azilda, Ontario. It was a very cool summer and I only went swimming at the beach twice. That and Huey Lewis and the News was getting way too much airplay!
