The minds were off on the Caribbean side. And then the INCAS were south. I'm so there's there's a lot to see around the Mayan history and it's interesting if you oh you go back and look at mine history. The mayans kind of were dominant for a while. And then when the Europeans started to come through the mines is kind of disappeared they kind of blended into the the the jungle inserted mixing around with the local people and stuff like that but the ruins left behind or just fantastic amazing mazing to go through so where they're they're so many of them in world we'll jump right into it right now. Looks looks starting your own. Yeah I know but just a few more things. Another things to know Bring Emoji ogm point you motivate earpiece. We've had enough occasions okay. So one trip we took west of the island glazer. I'm his the came with lunch and it was a wonderful island. Cedar was to order. ooh I think it was a buffet style. Anyway but the food was served on a plastic plates. And not the paper plates. Where you're GONNA toss right? Never reach us so just you know watch out for those things and make sure to. Food is served on the disposable paper. Not Plastic plates away. What did you finding the back of the restaurant buckets year? I mean the plates get recirculated back into the general population. We shall say they this assist say at least at that particular time hygiene wasn't super. How shall one say administered? If I guess and you'll hear of MONTEZUMA's revenge MONTEZUMA's revenge she.

Yes and there are many other high end brands that you may like. But don't think I think that they just going to simply just serve you. They probably going to serve you. What brand would be like or but if you do on specific kind do ask and then have a couple of loose dollars in handle fi box or whatever and then just and if you're just going after a standard Margarita? Uh you don't really care just gonNA throw whatever Tequila. They got there. But if you are a Tequila Fan and you get some good Tequila slip the bartender. I think we talked about this last time. It was from the different. A friend like yeah so we touched on it but I have some cash on hand on hand in Handy and and that goes a long way and even though you you're staying in an all inclusive resort and you know chances are you're you're drinking plenty of good stuff. He wants some of the premium stuff. It take care of the bartenders because they'll take care of you. They are awesome. Yeah really really good people. They're out there to have a good time. They want to make sure that you're having a good time. If you take care of them hands down they'll take care of you and then check out daily activities. Yeah they're so much to do at each to resort so so I know you can do plenty epsilon site but then there are a lot to do outsi so let's go talk about directions so we've been at the resort. We've done a lot of the the daily things but we were in Mexico. We want to see some cool things. So where's one of the first places if you're visiting the Yucatan peninsula for the first time that you should go got to go to cheats anytime Anita Church and eat Sir yes sir. Yes C. H. I. C. H. E. N.. Space Church in needs a is you. You wonder if the world you know it is. It's a world heritage site is well yes it is a very well preserved town a really large kind kind of Mayan. It's a big place city. Yeah it was. It's got one of the most famous pyramids all of the Yucatan called L. Castio and and it is central in Chichewa. It's really wild before you could walk all over L. Casteel nowadays. It's all roped off but when you get there the pyramid yeah when we first went there you could go up this pyramid. You're just Mayan Ruins shape like pyramids and it's built by Mata people twelve twelve hundred years ago. Yes yes and it's quite spectacular. Actually if you go up nowadays it's just barricade and you can't do that anymore because I think that was really ruining right. Yeah well people climbing all the reindeer exactly but coming down that Pyramid Charlotte's. It's amazing. How they built it? You know that many many years ago technologies and and all that is just amazing. It's a huge place. Yeah go ahead. I was just GonNa say is an in massive massive structure but it's super super impressive and it is a a definite Treasure for all of the Yucatan ten. It definitely showcases. The extent of the Mayan civilization was a very very large if not the largest of the Mayan cities and likely early to have been one of the mythical great cities that came about in literature around that time as well so Real diverse population of Mayan people. That live there a lot of what they did in terms of activities or events even some of the more brutal things that into the US do sacrifices Akra ffices there as well halters and stuff like that. A lot of that history is preserved in the buildings in the inscriptions. And if you get a local guide the walkie through the different parts of of the town There is an observatory that was there as well. There's a well there where they go through a lot of the sacrifices in their games like a basketball ask you ball game that they used to play there as well and you could memory hours and hours and hours. They're just walking around the different ruins. It's a huge place you can easily spend and hours right and you love history. I love huge site. You read about it and you visit and then you admire yeah and it can be very hot got old during July August peak summertime so please have like we were saying earlier. Have plenty of fluids. Yeah can I take fluids and then bring water the whole Yucatan as I said before. It's like a rainforest and here. Is this massive city kind of cut out of the rainforest greenforce so to get to it. You gotta go through the rainforest. It's hot it's tropical. It's you know it can be a bit oppressive. The structures themselves really well preserved beautifully beautifully. Intact you can walk on some of them you can get up close and personal with some but L. Casteel. You cannot walk on it anymore. I'm it is roped off and roped off for good good reason. I guess people and tourists were taking taking advantage of it. But like I said get a tour guide in from any of the major resorts any of the resorts up and down the Yucatan Peninsula easily over there. And take you there or you can rent a car and drive their yourself. We actually did to be dry both times we drove. Oh I think we drove one time in the other time we took a tour with your folks and then the kids and the kids right right right okay. That was a tour. Okay yeah either way. It's easy really really the if not the most famous Oh my goodness popular and you don't go to Geneva smack yourself in the head because it's the right place to go to. It is an amazing amazing place. So talking of this kind the Mayan Ruins what will be the next one Mazzi. If you say this will for me the next ruin would be Koba. Oh really not. Too Long to loom is awesome but remember Koba. It is not as Well preserved as Chichinadze really high. I pyramid and you can walk all over it like auto breath. Oh man who. It is kind of off the beaten path away from kitchen going further into the center of the Yucatan Peninsula. But when you get to the top of the jungle sane. Yeah Oh my mom was amazing. Yeah I if you can do both kitchen needs and Koba check those two out again and really well. Preserved is a beautifully big city. Kobo was this massive pyramid in village areas around just jungles been taking it over so so it's Kinda interesting. That's roped off. I don't think so. It's been a while since we've been there but I don't know if you remember when we drove we drove up parked there and it's just like a little wooden fence and pay an interest. Fini walk through this jungle and boom. There's the wrong in time off the way we can go up the pyramid hit all the major ones exactly exactly so those are cool and then to lose one for me so to loom is. It's another Mayan ruin. It's actually facing the The the Caribbean coastline. The ocean of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula Zillah. And it's known for its beaches and it is pre- pretty well preserved. I will say and it's a very ancient Incheon city. It's very interesting there at that time. Local selling drugs and things in bags and blather stuff and all those you know. Yeah did you say that to loom was actually the port for Koba portfolio. Right there in the Yucatan there. Right at the C.. To your point is well could get you over to cozumel and Cozumel was an island. Just just off the Yucatan. There are two so really important area for the Mayan civilization and it was one of the last cities built an inhabited by by the Mayans between the thirteenth fifteenth centuries and then the Spaniards came in in the as I said the miser kind of crept back into the into into the jungles with the legend. Has it a lot of people felt thought that the minds just died off but realistically they kind of melted back into general population maintaining some some of that culture but as well holding onto the language in in things of that nature so really quite interesting until absolutely gorgeous right there on the the Caribbean coast. They're gorgeous a beach. Areas is quite quite lovely in the garage sales. Take him the ruins not a good shape. INSTAGRAM squirm spot. Yeah Yeah exactly. And how far is it from Cancun to loom is about an hour and forty minutes to give you an idea and it's in the state of have content aroo there there's cozumel proper which is northern Yucatan Container Ruas a status down south there And that's where to loom khanates Koba those major ruins are And just google to loom just the pictures just gorgeous absolutely. Yeah so that's another the place that we highly recommend and you'll spend maybe about an hour down there just bopping around some of the ruins looking at the beach to your point through some shops there you can by local rug or something like that in back in the bus and head back up the peninsula. That's right and so another place that I want to mention is apply their Carmen. Oh they have a good hospital to all this they do. We talked about that but anyway. That's about an hour from Cancun sang-keun and that's also. There are tons of restaurants tons of shops. It's also easy ferry very right to Cosmo yes it is so when you go there you can just easily hop on the ferry and in Take a short trip to 'cause Mel against spend spend the whole day there. It's just a fun town. A lots of restaurant options if.

You were down in Mexico and I figured it'd be a great opportunity for us to finish up on on the Yucatan now since we started doing it right before the break break coming back from the break I talked a little bit about traveling without ide- happy new year. Happy New Year again for everyone for those of you who are just coming back with with us again. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's break and welcome to twenty twenty and it is the nearest you awesome smashing two thousand twenty. It's it's the year of the what again it's a rat. You're the Yes. Yeah the other at Chinese New Year coming up in a couple of weeks so next week for those nine nine in the part of the world and Yeah we're we're super happy to continue our adventures in Mexico and specifically the peninsula so last one we were introducing some of our favourite all inclusive resorts. You might have seen it interesting theme you you know. We talked about places in Cancun proper We came down to play Doh Carmen. And more. The the minor vera talked about Cho's mill and there's good reason for having that bit of variety if you will there's a ton of stuff to do on the Yucatan peninsula around some of the resorts but also a little further away from the resorts so we're going to be touching on attractions. We cover all the accommodation site side of things so we're going to dive into attractions. We've tried we've been that we really light. That's right and as well as I thought it'd be useful to talk about things to know before you go and try all inclusive resorts excellent excellent. You know. That's something that I think. We forgot to bring up there. We did talk about the accommodations. We did talk about the food. Yeah I'm in some of the amenities of it but I think you got an excellent point there what to prepare for before you down. So let's jump right into it saw. It's not in the order of priority. But I think you know do some research before you go and know the demographics at the resort that you choose to stay at some will oh cater a is important because some cater more towards families one of the one that tops within the family resort though he talked about is beaches beaches teaches you. Although beaches isn't Turksancacoes and in other locations not Yucatan Peninsula and in the summer adults only use they. Are you know and the one that actually just went in Los Calbos was adult. Only we can kind of go dive into it was interesting it was Lou. Are you Spanish chain rain. I think and there are three resorts attached to one another but to resort caters to different demographics. So I thought he would you know. I wish I also didn't do enough research. I felt like and so. We've we've found some differences in each resor in an Oh. We thought that this goal will be at the adults only but it was actually located in the middle section. We're just Kinda loud but it was catered towards family and I thought the music had the techno night. It's a pool. Oh Party and on Saturday night. But that's supposed to be a family friendly resort. I thought got pretty loud. So so just just a little thing like it's useful to now and some are more catered towards honeymooners. So if you want the privacy if you want a little bit more intimate to yourself and then your spouse partner well you're newlyweds so You WanNa try that out a little bit. You know who knows there are definitely resorts it'll cater towards those things and so jumping going into you know understanding that before you go down. There's probably going to be helpful in terms of maximizing your your enjoyment right and do your research on excursions. Yeah is there sport desk in at the resorts like especially for us. We like to go scuba diving and snorkeling. So it's always always nice to have you know when there's a activity desk in their company on side where they can sign up and they can take you to Scuba Godiva Catamaran tour or sunset cruise or instead of taking the transportation to appear somewhere else in any departs from there. You know you. Yeah I think it's easier if it's like a Hawaii and all but in it just depends on the plane. We tend to have transportation. Take us then we just stay at the resort so if you can depart from your resort to these excursions it's it's always. Yeah plus in its. That's another interesting thing too. Who I mean we? I think we talked about it when we talked about staying in Cancun that we did rent a car. I think in a couple of occasions and we that is an option two for you. There's there's definitely the option to rent vehicles. You don't have to rent them at the airport going to Cancun and there's a resorts at have car rental facilities on them likewise down in Playa del Carmen or up and down the Yucatan Peninsula there. You'll find rental car places. I'm driving around pretty straightforward Mexico. Exco the police officers don't necessarily get paid the same wages it we get up here and stuff like that so on occasion you might get pulled over and and the might charge you for speeding. Everything is paved right. It's every night even when we I rented a long time mm-hmm ago but it was unpaved in a we got into some sort of a like a security area with the around with Amazon and stuff like interesting interesting and they're looking at is like what the hell are you doing here. I know laws. We're trying to find global in several years later or even ten years fast forward. Yeah and it just seems like street saw more easier to yeah. There's there's just a freeway taking were they WANNA go down to to loomed pretty easy. It's easy going driving. There is not a problem at all like I said the only times you might have a little encounter is sometimes you might get pulled over for and on occasion. You know the police officers West for it's not a bribe of per se but they will ask for some cash to help that ticket go away way. Oh yeah so it would just be on the lookout for that. Those are things to take into consideration. so keep some cash on hand. That's about the best best thing we can tell you right. Just Dong gear off Romain. Stay on the main highway in your. You'll be fine and there's GPS but anyway so in in another thing. I wanted to touch on things to know before you go at all inclusive. I've heard this and we've also experienced this. They say it's all inclusive inclusive but he usually sometimes the premium real premium like are especially the wine they give you extra menu. Can you can pay extra so. Don't be surprised when you get it. You don't need to order those. There are plenty of selection and that's true for food to if I'm not mistaken sometimes Anton for heavily interfere lobster and steak and Philemon you certain resorts even Philemon in lobsters were included. We've stayed at those but then other resort. We've stayed at that. They make you pay extra also scuba diving. A spas those are not they include it and any snorkeling tours. Glass bottom boat tours does on nine and Dolphin tour so obviously obviously those excursions on not include it Wi fi I think for the most part are usually is starting to come in. And that's one thing it's been a nice convenient so we've seen as of late and in many resorts also comes with the credit resorts credit that you can use while you are on the property right right right but I've heard I actually did an experience. This by one of our friends who went to I think it was a moon palace that certain tours only offer certain days of the week and also a lot of solicitations for you. I'm tired please. Be careful become into them. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is so. Just be be wary leery of that with these these massive resort credits and stuff like that they may have you sit in a time share presentation you have to go through the sale fine print. We get excited. Once you get to the resort and you don't read those explanation page right so yeah just be careful and well. It's kind of common sense. I guess but the check the weather storms may be heading your way because I remember this was 'cause mail we wanted to go on the scuba diving but what. I didn't check the weather in advance and when it does change in the tropics but the storm was coming. We actually couldn't go about safety the reasons it's the right thing but yeah there are hurricanes will come down that far and on occasion cozumel and or Cancun will get hit When young keep your wits about you make sure that you're aware of that? It shouldn't deter you from heading down there. It's rare that they get those those types of storms and go through there but it is tropical goal. You get tropical. Storms that breeze through there on a regular basis it is a rainforest. I guess it's hot especially in the summertime. It gets very hot so do please do bring plenty of water and hat sunglasses and scream. And and that reminds me of chinn-shaw Ktar because one of our son actually started the have a feeling Super Ah-ha but the do venture out right. There's so much to see whole Yucatan attend area so many mayans ruined is just really worth in. That's the thing I mean. Most people will go down. There will be on the beach and they're staying at their hotel. But you know. Sometimes I just want to do that. Just the lounge by the full in front by their honesty C. N.. And we will go through that tractions minute but there's just so much to do and in so many varieties right soak in the culture. You can do that if you really want the ocean. The water sports parks ecological parks yet. Just choices are really quite interesting..

"Maybe more the Yucatan and other areas searching for clues about Edgar Casey's mysterious all of records. Dr little welcome back to the program. Thank you, George. It's always a pleasure and good morning to everybody. I guess it's morning everywhere. Got that right. I'm looking forward to this. What's new with you? Have you been been fine? I think the last time we were taught we talked to just a little bit about my father who's now ninety four this. My mother just turned ninety. Very good. It's amazing. It is. It is my father's World War. Two veteran got a bronze star and is just doing great right now. So, yeah, we've been very busy. We've been in we're involved in some research in Alabama. I think be I haven't been on and talked about that at all. And I probably won't say much about it. But Alabama has thousands literally literally thousands of mounds that are stone mounds and stone, snake effigies that have been found in mountains, there in just recent years. And I mean, literally thousands of these stone nouns actually wrote a book that included them in it. We've been working on. A book been working on books with Andrew Collins for some time, but we have one coming out in September, that we sent in about six months ago, and it covers some of the same ground as Graham handcocks, new one Andrew wasn't ram while we wrote this, and so that, that is about the ancient history of the Americas. The giants man's hybrids, perhaps be ender falls in the Americas and it somewhat confirms what your case he said about the ancient world. So I've been pretty busy. Of course. I'm busy in my profession, which other thing entirely Juliane talking about the mountains throughout North America. And I think he's tipping toward the possibility of some kind of extraterrestrial help, what did Casey say, well Casey did talk about what could pro- I believe that it's alien that Casey mention he talked about. At least two, if not three, interventions in ancient times, Casey did talk about America's mounds and native Americans, and he had like fifty six readings that directly talked about Indian mounds, he did not say that they came from aliens. He really gave a history of it more than anything else. And he said that the that the reason mounds were built in America. They came from an influence from Mexico and South America and the Gobi experience, which he talked about Atlanta going to the Gobi desert, and he said they were part of it went that it was part of the Atlantis experience. So he didn't attribute least in his readings and the problem with Casey's readings is that I mean, even if it did, nobody asking, even if it was aliens, nobody asked him alien, we're aliens involved in this. So. As he generally answered the questions that were asked him during his psychic transit, so there's a lot we don't know. I mean many many things we could talk about in from Casey's readings, the people just didn't do enough, follow up questions and sometimes whatever the entity was, or the force was speaking through Casey, when he was in his psychic trance, sometimes it would just end the session. Say that I've given you enough. You already know the answer, and we end, so we don't really know everything based on Casey's ratings. But it's, it's exceedingly interesting. And Casey, of course, is considered the father of holistic medicine, and he is probably best known and people find in most interest in his health ratings. And then there's a core people like me that are very interested in it in his ancient history ratings and his ratings on Atlantis. So those are the ones too, that skeptics, really liked to jump on and make fun of, but his health readings definitely are were highly agley really are. I'm waking up the flooding in the midwest. I'm beginning to think that his map of the future might be right now. Yeah. He did say that there would be something that would something would happen. Some people call them earth changes and that the Gulf of Mexico, essentially would extend all the way up the Mississippi River valley and be quite wide, which I live on the Mississippi River, right next to in fact, I live on an island, which has the Mississippi on one side, and what's called the wolf river on the other, and I would either have golf property or be under water here. I'm not sure which would be, but he say Casey did say that something would happen in the oceans would rise. He did have a lot of predictions. He said that the predictions would not necessarily come true because predictions only only told what would happen if nothing changed and man could intervene and. Change things. So he said these predictions would not necessarily come true. It just depended what we did in response, and Europe changes are just one set of predictions that he made he's still working with the organization Ari. Yes. Absolute people, Kevin to do she and Kevin, Kevin is the director of the IRA. My wife has been on the board of trustees. I think it's four years now which she cycles off. Thank thank. I'm glad she is fairly soon. We are planning a series of expeditions, that we will start then she's been tied up for years, having to go to meetings on a regular basis we that the Lantis search that we were involved with for all those years. We've found thirty one crashed planes. I got very interested in one sounds like the Bermuda triangle way, did all Bermuda. Triangle? That was not our initial intent. And it just happened that we started finding planes underwater. We went down with the National Geographic, one time for about a week and took them to one of the planes, which we subsequently got some parts out of and some ideas able to some of them, were, they actually had the parts and actual geographic sent these parts to England to the Royal airforce, which the Royal Air Force took the parts inside a DC three was which was a dental to the one way fat and found where the part went, and we believe that it was like the third actually, the second most important crash, the Bermuda triangle that occurred not too long after flight nineteen. It was a commercial DC three that crashed and it just disappeared. But we believe we found that and National Geographic believe we found that. We've found another one with the history channel. And actually, we found one taking my father down there on the coast, and it was a tale of a plane, that had all the end numbers intact on it, and it was a plane, which disappeared into a triangle, but we only found the tale we found lots of archaeological stuff to. But so we wound up getting involved in both Bermuda triangle stuff. And in the archaeology issue, it was just very, very interesting. And in the course of it, we had a number of bizarre and strange things take place. A lot of electrical problems.
