    Thousands of tourists are flocking to Mexico's Yucatan peninsula to be part of the so-called "Mayan Apocalypse".
    Many of them believe the world is coming to an end this Friday, when a major cycle of the Mayan calendar ends.
    Some say the 5000-year-old Mayan civilization is entering a new era.
