Once upon a time, I was going home. When I saw a light reflecting on something, which turned me away from home. So, I went towards the light and it was a banana-split floating in chocolate milk!! I looked around me and realised that it was the candy mania island my friends dreamed of going to! The people were sour patches, there were boats that were bananas and the seats were peanut-butter, the ground was popping candy mixed with m&m’s, and Reeses cups were the saddles on a jelly horse!!!! There was even coco-pops meant for beach balls at the park. Best of all I was the president in the white chocolate house!! There were Oreo dogs in a cage, even sugar in a bowl as foot massager! It was full of life in the place I tell you! My favorite thing in the was the Nutella birds. My least favorite thing to know was that there were jelly rats inside the cabinet!!!
Have you ever heard about the Mayans? Did you know that in estimation there are 7 million Mayans still living around the Yucatan? The Mayans were very natural and creative, but we will get to that later.
The Yucatan is located in Mesoamerica which the now call Mexico. It was and still is very beautiful! It provided everything they needed to live to live and have a good life.
They called their writing”Maya glyphs”. Everything they wrote were cool pictures and their numbers looked like morse code! The had the gift of writing (more drawing) and understanding.
Their calendar was awesome! They used pictures to represent the day, month, and year. Another cool thing about their was they used a”20-day cycle” because each day represented a cool Yucatec name. Their calendar was known as the Tzolkin.
The Mayans were very creative about everything. Their calendar, food, and lifestyle has influenced our world. I bet the Mayans are the ones who first made tortillas, so Mexicans didn’t invent tortillas after all!
