FRANCE-WORLD-BUGARACH-OFFBEAT

French mounted police patrol on December 20, 2012 in the French southwestern village of Bugarach, near the 1,231 meter high peak of Bugarach - one of the few places on Earth some believe will be spared when the world allegedly ends according to claims regarding the ancient Mayan calendar. French authorities have pleaded with New Age fanatics, sightseers and media crews not to converge on the tiny village.
