Method: GoPro Hero 4 camera, attached by head strap, bicicleta. Assignment: you have 10 minutes to show the world your favorite spots in Yaxhachen. In this video, 11 year old Enrique Xul Us, takes us on a bike ride through the pueblo where he was born and raised. The sights he reveals are enthralling -- traditionally constructed palapa houses, big beautiful Yucatan sky, and even a flash of the mural that Enrique painted this past summer with Ko'ox Boon in the Yaxhachen centro. Most importantly, we see Yaxhachen desde sus ojos... from his eyes.
