According to a slightly stupid interpretation of the Mayan calendar, tomorrow is the end of the world. You’ve probably heard.
A few people here in Tarapoto seem genuinely concerned about this potentially life-ending event. Not like running-around-screaming-and-saying-goodbye concerned, but concerned enough to ask — in a slightly concerned kind of way — if other people think the world will end on December 21, 2012.
Anyway, just in case the world does end tomorrow, I’d like to say thanks for reading and I hope you’ve all enjoyed your lives. I’m fairly happy with my 34 years on this little planet, but I would have liked to have seen England win the World Cup. Oh well.
If you are reading this tomorrow and the world hasn’t ended or undergone a significant change, then congratulations. Actually, maybe save the congratulations until Saturday afternoon, as I’m not sure about the exact time of the global cataclysm.
Thanks. And goodbye. Just in case…
