What did I learn?
I now know where those very tiny Hispanic people come from. If youâ€™ve ever seen them, you know the ones. Theyâ€™re four feet something? Theyâ€™re Maya. My friend JPBâ€™s dad is probably of Maya extraction. Heâ€™s very short.
My guide also said there is a birthmark for the Maya people, even if you only have a drop of Maya blood it seems to be dominant. It looks like a bruise on the tailbone area, not the buttocks, and it generally fades away by the age of ten, though it doesnâ€™t always.
Also, he said, the more pure strains of Maya people have eyelids that are slanted.
And, since he is of Maya extraction, I am going with his and the literature around hereâ€™s use of Maya instead of Mayan
