Day Four (Dena)

Tue, 14 Jun 2011 | By nelsjohnson | Views [73]

Nels´s frustration with my poor navigation peaked today when I, again, was compeletely lost.  This town is beautiful, but the streets are lined with condrete walls and city ordinances only allow 5 different colors for the buildings.  On top of that these ... Read more >

Day Four

Tue, 14 Jun 2011 | By nelsjohnson | Views [91] | Video

Sunday morning the family consensus was to leave our homestay.  The house is far too crowded (at almuerzo Saturday, Silvia's sons had to wait for us to finish before they could sit down for their lunch shift); the shower is a cold dribble, when the water ... Read more >

Day Three

Money matters are the most boring possible opener, but, as I´m currently waiting in a long line to exchange traveler´s checks at the Banco Industrial, this is a good opportunity to mention Antigua´s unique money problems.  Traveler´s checks are relics ... Read more >

Day Two

They kept at it ´til 12 down there... Our driver hit his horn at 5:45 AM for our trek to Pacaya, Guatemala´s active volcano (Google what happened there last year).  These hikes are, superficially, a clash of Mayan and gringo cultures.  Kids wait outside ... Read more >

Day One

Sat, 11 Jun 2011 | By nelsjohnson | Views [76] | Video

No sleep for any of us for the past 40 hours. We arrived today at our spartan Antigua homestay, 10 people in an 800 square foot home, and that comfort zone started to crumble.  I´m writing this at 10:30 and although we collapsed in bed 3 hours ago, ... Read more >

This is our first ever attempt at travel-blogging.  We'll do everything on wi-fi with the boys' iTouches, if it works. Today's our getaway day.  Both Dena and I have been pretty stressed getting all the myriad details ready, but I'm sure that's nothing ... Read more >

Guatemala Part 1: Where Volcanoes, Lakes and Volcanoes meet Gothic Architecture

Wed, 11 May 2011 | By elis82 | Views [684]

Coming into Central America, Bron and I agreed that Guatemala was the place that we were most looking forward too. Mexico was so impressive (with the exception of Bron getting a case of Mexican Two-Step) that I wondered whether Guatemala could hope ... Read more >

Our last day in Antigua before catching a flight to Flores and Tikal, Mom & I decided to get a touch adventurous and climb Pacaya Volcano. In the grand tradition of Developing Countries' Dubious Safety Protocols at Major National Treasures (see:... Read more >
