Mayan Prophecy Life Certificate 2012

Xcaret, the largest eco park in the Riviera Maya, was giving out these “Mayan Prophecy Life Certificates 2012”

So as I promised Adam S, I’ve got images of the celebrations being held as the date of the new era comes closer. Whatever you believe, it is important to remember that it is a time of reflection and a chance at change. There was this quote from the movie “Life of Pi” that says, “All of life is an act of letting go but what hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.”

So, this is a goodbye to all the things I want to leave behind. The only constant in life is change so bring it on.

I liked this Crocodile character and as silly as it sounds, he reminded me of Craig Ferguson’s Wavy the Crocodile.
