Just a few more days til the end of the world, if you believe all that Mayan calendar hoopla. Tonight Jennifer will be talking about her trips into the jungles of Honduras and Guatemala, visiting the majestic, moss-covered Mayan temples that for centuries were obscured by vegetation. The Mayans had an amazingly complex system for marking time, with several calendars running concurrently. There was a 13-month calendar, a 52-year calendar, and another one which ran for close to 5200 years. The chances of all three ending on the same day are pretty slim., but that's what happens this Friday, the 21st. Is it the end of the world? Did the Mayans ever suggest that? Or is it a grand new beginning of some kind? Tune in to find out!
