Hola! I'm Laura
Your Tzolk'in Guide
I have been living in Mexico and Central America for about twleve years now, close to the ruins and sacred cenotes of the Mayalands. It is a dream come true for me! When I was about 8 and just learning to read, I found a copy of national Geographic that belonged to my grandparents. On the cover was a fabulous Maya pyramid, almost lost in the jungle! Instantly I knew there were secrets in the story that were meant just for me. I tried to get my parents to read me the article, but they said I would have to figure it out myself.
Oh the hours I labored with a dictionary, trying to read every word in that mesmerizing piece! I KNEW it held secrets for me to discover. But alas, it would be years before I could decipher what they were.
Years passed and I visited the Yucatan Peninsula for the first time. I was entranced. The day I had to leave, I cried. But I would come back one day to fulfill a dream and perhaps a destiny.
Now, it has been twelve years that I have been living among the Maya, exploring the ruins, swimming and even scuba diving in the cenotes, pouring over the ancient art, studying sacred texts, practicing the local languages, reading Mayan glyphs, listening to the stories and learning the ways, the wisdom, and the magic of the local people. It has been twelve years that I have been uncovering mysteries and secrets!
