Life lessons learned so far:   Water temperature is directly related to water pressure; the more pressure, the warmer the water (I think.  It doesn’t actually get hot).   Guatemalans can pack more people onto ... Read more >

Coming to Antigua

Tue, 8 Jan 2013 | By emsussman | Views [169] | Comments [1]

Sunday, January 6, I woke up, showered, and did some last minute packing.  After a quick breakfast, David, Oshi, Dani, Ari, and I piled into the car for the ride to Antigua.  They took me to the bank so I could withdraw some cash (1,000Q=$125), ... Read more >

December 26 we packed up our stuff and headed to Playa Likin (playa means beach).  Dani and Ari assured us that it was nothing special, but they’re very wrong.  Their beach house is very spacious with enough beds to fit about 15 people ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Sun, 6 Jan 2013 | By aoifekk | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

Colour. Beauty. Passion. Three of the hundreds of adjectives that run through my head when I pick up a National Geographic magazine, as each page turned brings a rush of adventure, life, a world where words are not necessary. Words are a burden. People ... Read more >

Sat, 5 Jan 2013 | By emsussman | Views [349]

Sunday morning we left for the infamous Irtra, the hot spot for Guatemalan Jews for Christmas.  It is a humungous series of hotels and restaurants with two swimming pools, a small bowling alley, mini golf, a spa, raquetball courts, and massive green ... Read more >

Towering Treasures in Tikal

Fri, 4 Jan 2013 | By steve_and_emma | Views [162]

Having taken a huge, largely unnecessary detour to Rio Dulce / Livingston it was time to get back on track and head up north.  Fortunately the morning ‘tour’ boat didn’t attempt to hang around on route so we were soon back in Rio ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Fri, 4 Jan 2013 | By troels | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I want to make the world closer. That is why I went to journalism school. And that is why I realised, when I finished school this summer, that I need to put a “photo” in front of my title. I seek to understand people, especially those overlooked by ... Read more >

Not Such a Sweet Time on the Rio Dulce

Wed, 2 Jan 2013 | By steve_and_emma | Views [435]

It would have been all too easy to lounge around in San Pedro La Laguna for another day but fortunately we’d already bought our shuttle tickets.  There was no way we were going to waste Q180 a head so we were up, packed and at the tour office ... Read more >

Quality Trekking in Quetzaltenango

Mon, 31 Dec 2012 | By steve_and_emma | Views [447]

Much to our delight the locals kindly shorten this to Xela (pronounced shel-la); a derivative of the ancient name for the town.  It was time to move away from Christmas indulgence and lazy travelling and get back to using chicken buses.  Here ... Read more >
