Let’s break the routine of written articles with an audio track (in French) about Mapuche legends. Here, it is very difficult to draw the line between myth and reality, at least according to the western definitions of these two words.

Bocas, a Caribbean cultural mix

Bocas del Toro, on the North-East coast of Panama, is especially famous for its beaches, palm trees and tiny red frogs. However, the real wealth of this fabulous place seems to be its culture and inhabitants. Everything here is a perfect blend of Jamaican, Spanish and Central American influences.

Listen to the audio track to hear Sami speak Wari-Wari, an English creole, and a group of men playing dominoes, which seems to be the local sport. All this to say Bocas is far more than just beaches!

A Mayan hieroglyph explained in Mayan.

Have you ever wondered what the Mayan language sounded like, and what their strange and beautiful hieroglyphs mean? Well, the Mayan language is still spoken by Natives in Chiapas, in the South of Mexico.

Here is an explination, in Maya-Tzeltal and Spanish, of the significance of a hieroglyph from the pyramid of Toniná. This Mayan city reached its peak during the 8th century and declined around 900 A.D.

The hieroglyph talks about the capture of the city of Palenque and its sovereign by the warriors of Toniná.

“Here are the Mayan numbers. It’s a vigesimal numeral system. Here you can see the numbers 3, 5, and 5. That’s a total of 13. In the Maya-Tzeltal Mayan language, that we now speak, 13 means ‘night’. On these hieroglyphs, we see number 16, which is the day during which the great lords of Toniná entered the grand city of Palenque and captured the Divine Lord Yellow Boar. It also says here that he is the Sacred Lord who rules the great city of Palenque. The symbol that represents Palenque means ‘bone’.” — Mayan guide in Toniná
