The Last Gringo In Mexico: Hurricane Dean and Its Aftermath - Help the Yucatec Maya
Most important, Cliff "gets" the people there, and is doing something real and in real-time to help. I'd like to help him help, and you can, too. All donations sent to Cliff via his paypal address, cliff at portillas you-know-what, will be distributed directly to the people who need it most, the people you are not likely to hear about or see in the nightly news. A little bit of money goes a long way in Xcalak. If you pay by credit card, include a little extra as he has to pay a fee for credit card transactions. I've been reading the travel boards and Costa Maya sites for many years now, although I don't know him I know that Cliff is a real guy and will really help.
As I wrote after Wilma hit Cancun and Isla Mujeres, this hurricane will show the real face of Mexico to the world. Apocalipto is a bunch of Krapalipto. We have much to learn from this ancient culture.
