All of us are born in time, traveling down our measured time lines in blind faith that the moments before us shall continue to unfold without end, that the beauty of creation flows from an infinite wellspring. Come, wake from the big sleep and join Cosamado as the veils fall and it is revealed to him that the creators of time have decreed that time shall flow no more.
Stars fall, light fades as the young Mayan priest climbs the 49 steps to the pinnacle of the great pyramid at Uxmal. It is from there that his spirit ascends through the crack of dawn to join with a dead soul who will lead him to Richard of Wallingford, the one person on earth capable of making a portal that can connect our world to the land of the creators of time.
Provided with a set of instructions on how to create the portal tattooed upon his back, Cosamado must make an incredible journey from the southern tip of the Mexican peninsula to the damp, gray world of Oxford, England. Along the way he will meet a series of enlightened beings who will help him with his quest. Melting time? Territorial disputes between dreamland and the waking world? Shape-shifting beauties? Come join Cosamado as he travels through a perfectly imperfect world that unveils some of life's more profound mysteries.

I really enjoyed the travel. It's not a action book; instead a reflection and intimate book.
I tried but it's just so boring and it seems to go on ad infinitum.Eventually I gave up, about 11 pages from the end I think, that was as far as I could go.
