A Raving Mad Mountain by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

The Maya calendar ends on 21 December 2012. Is the end of the world really near? It reminds me of the millennium bug. But the Mayas are really worrying certain people, or in other words, these are the people who are getting ready to travel to Bugarach, a village in the south of France.

I’ve never understood why you would want to escape if the rest of the world perishes, but I leave people to their hobbies.

The village is located at the foot of a magic mountain called Pech de Bugarach. Apparently this mountain forms a gateway between different dimensions. True believers are convinced that on 21 December ‘aliens will come to rescue humans from the apocalypse.

At the appointed hour, the mountain will split open and release spaceships to rescue anyone who happens to be nearby, rather like in Thunderbirds. I’m just a bit afraid that the human race isn’t putting forwards its best specimens.

Find out what this has to do with David and Victoria Beckham and the Belgians.
