Once upon a time there was a little newsboy who was very, very poor and he only sold old newspapers because he didn't have enough money for new ones.

People didn't by his newspapers because they were all so out of date, and they wanted new newspapers.

So the little newsboy never sold any, and every day he accumulated more and more old newspapers.

What the little newsboy did was put up a paper recycling plant, and he became a millionaire, bought out all the newspaper businesses and the news agencies, prohibited publishing current news, and thus obliged people to read only news of the past.

In the papers on sale today, for example, you'd read that the Zapatistas are about to arrive in Mexico City and that they'll meet with the Villistas there.

You can't quite make out the date, but it seems to either 1914 or 1997.

Tale of the
Little Seamstress

Once upon a time, there was a little seamstress who sewed mightily on his sewing machine. The other machines in his neighborhood laughed at him, and shouted: "Fairy! Only old women are streamstresses!" So the little seamstress sewed shut the mouths of everyone who made fun of him. That is why, to this day, we do not know how the story ended, because no one could tell it.

Mexican Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (National Institute of Anthropology and History known as INAH for its Spanish abbreviation) is the federal government bureau established in 1939 to guarantee the research, preservation, protection, and promotion of the prehistoric, archaeological, anthropological, historical, and paleontological heritage of Mexico.

This bureau is responsible for the over 110 thousand historical monuments, built between the 16th and 19th centuries, and for 29 thousand archaeological zones found all over the country, although is it estimated there must be 200 thousand sites with archaeological remains. Of these 29,000, 150 are open to the public.

Uxmal GENERAL TOUR INFO

If you are taking a video camera you must pay $5.00 extra to use it. You pay at the front gate at the ruin site. [You pay for the rights to video the park.] This does NOT apply to cameras.

Take a jacket/blanket/towel with you for the bus ride because the air-conditioning is always on "freezing".

It is safe to leave things like blankets, hats etc on the bus but we do not recommend leaving anything valuable. The bus driver will not let anyone who is not on the tour get on the bus so you do not have to worry about the bus driver or tour guide or any Mexican stealing anything. If anything goes missing it is another tourist.

At the ruin sites do NOT cross any marked lines or enter any restricted areas. Even if you think nobody is watching you we can guarantee that somebody "is".



TULUM RUINS UXMAL RUINS TOUR TIPS

Your tour bus first enters a large parking lot and lets you off. The front entrance has a small craft market, stores and restaurants where you can buy books, maps, videos and arts and crafts. This is where the public washrooms are as well.

Bring water! There is no place to buy it once you enter the ruins.

Take lots of film with you. You cannot stop during your tour to go look for film but you can buy film, batteries and disposable cameras at the front gate.

Take a hat or an umbrella with you especially in the summer [June - August], it gets hot.

Better to ware hiking shoes over sandals if you want to climb up things. This is because your feet get all sweaty and it becomes easy to slip unless you have really tight well fitting sandals.

Bring a nap-sack to carry your stuff on your back.

Bugs are not a problem but are more prevalent in the dry seasons. Take bug spray as a precaution.

Pay close attention to your guide and you will learn a lot about the Maya and Uxmal Ruins.
