Things I learned in Chichen Itza located in Mexico:
1. The Mayans believe that every beginning has an end, then the end loops back to the beginning again. It was modern superstition of the Mayan calendar that we thought civilization would end in 2012.
2. The origin of the Mexico flag: The Aztec legend has it that their Gods told them to build a city where they spot an eagle eat a serpent, and comes Mexico City.

It was amazing to actually be in the ball game stadium where the Mayans sacrifice the captain of the losing team to the Gods. I was so fascinated with that stuff when I was young.
