iximche' ruinas.

No Central American trip would be complete without seeing the local ruins. Kab'lajuj Ey went to Iximche' on Waqxaqi' Ey, a day that boded well for good luck. We also participated in a Mayan ceremony to give thanks to ri Ajaw (God). The ceremony was probably the most special part of this trip for me.

Also, I thought the fact that the fire blew ash on me during the entire two & a half hour ceremony, rendering me the appearance of a chimney sweep, was surely an ominous sign. Emily told me that, in fact, it's exceptionally good luck, because the fire (& God) paid attention to me!
