Summary

Did you know the Mayans used saunas for healing purposes?

Great introduction to the Maya

A good starting point to learn about the Maya. The narrator is a bit odd though. He is easy to listen to, until you hear the breath he takes before he starts every sentence that you then can't unhear. It sounds like it has been edited but cuts in half way through the breath...bizarre! Enjoyed listening overall though.
