The lush green trees, the fresh air, and the breathtaking mountain views made me envy the Mayas who once stood where I was. After a few intakes of breath, I strapped my backpack once again, grabbed my rifle and moved on as I reviewed my mission: patrol the jungles, arrest anyone breaking our laws and use force if necessary. About 15km away from the…

The team was accompanied by some Central Belizean locals, who insisted that there was an exceedingly high rate of childhood maltreatment cases in the village. Unfortunately, I allowed my emotions to take…

    The Maya DBQ Essay I believe the calendars were the most remarkable based on scale, effort, genius, and significance. The other achievements the Mayans accomplished where amazing but I believe this one was the greatest because we still used the Mayan calendars up in till 2012. The Mayans achievements also included their Trade Network, their buildings, the number system and of course the calendars. The Mayan mostly lived in Mesoamerica, “Mesoamerica is that part of modern-day Central…

It’s probably a short three-hour drive, it’s nothing a snooze on the car ride can’t take. As a child, I was easily impressed when observing the whole region: buildings and locals were very different in comparison to the city I came from. We used to go to…
