Fragmento de Portada

My meeting with Zelaya

Suddenly, he remembers the culture of the Mayan people with pride. He tells me that the length of years in that culture was more exact than the years used by western Christianity.  “Nowadays the world uses the decimal system; the Mayas had a system based on twenty, twice as exact”.  Truly, it was the first time in my life that I had heard about that detail, the advantage of using two plus zero instead of one plus zero.
