Sun, 19 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [528]

"La Casa de Federico" is what I said to the driver as I got on the sardine-packed bus toward San Jose (in Guatemala, not Costa Rica). He knew precisely how to get there! Driving seemingly in a circle around Lake Peten it was pouring down ... Read more >

Tikal

Fri, 17 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [598]

Dark it was with the moon shining as I awoke at 4:30 AM to set out toward Tikal. I didn't need much: just my passport, money for admission and food, and my camera, and I was out the door. With a rock in hand (to ward off dogs) I hoped for some quick ... Read more >

Falls, Flores and Fruitshakes

Thu, 12 Jan 2012 | By piratepete | Views [298]

We took a little speed boat from Belize to Southern Guatemala on New Years Eve. It was ridiculously bumpy and I spilt a cup of soup on the man sitting next to me, I kept apologising and he kept saying it was ok and calling me chica.  We arrived in Livingston ... Read more >
