Attention: Mel Gibson. This is what real Yucatec Maya sounds like. If you listen closely you can hear a few Spanish words mixed in where there are no Mayan words. I had just given a massage to Paula, the older woman, but she did not speak enough Spanish for me to get some information from her that I needed. So I called in Sofia, my housekeper, to translate since she does have some Spanish. Sofia saw Gibson's film "Apocalipto" but had a difficult time understanding the Mayan spoken. Don't know if it was because Gibson somehow had his actors speak "old" Mayan or if it was because most of the actors had to learn Mayan and maybe had bad accents. ¿Quien sabe?
