The Mayan calender mysteriously ends in 2012, which fuels the belief among some people that the world is going to end at the end of this year! I have a tin of salmon in the cupboard which doesn’t expire until 2013 so I think I can safely disprove that theory 😀
Some bars in Gran Canaria are having End of the World parties, which is just another excuse to drink, be merry and have fun. Atlantis Uno is one of these bars and their party begins at 7PM and ends “at 5AM or the end of the world, whichever comes first”.
You can find more information on this website and, if you don’t have anything planned for December 21, 2012 (the last day in the Mayan calendar) you might like to attend.
