No panic in Guatemala over ‘Mayan Apocalypse’

While some prepare for “doomsday” this week, normal life continues for Guatemala’s Maya.

Thousands of tourists are flocking to Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula to be part of the so-called “Mayan Apocalypse”.

Many of them believe the world is coming to an end this Friday, when a major cycle of the Mayan calendar ends. However, some say the 5000-year-old Mayan civilization is entering a new era.

So what do the Mayan people think themselves? Al Jazeera’s David Mercer visited a Guatemalan highland village to find out.
