Tikal

GUATEMALA | Fri, 17 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [503]

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 >

Rivers, trucks, and pupusas

EL SALVADOR | Sun, 5 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [1194] | Comments [1]

Awake at the first ray of light were Erick, Christian, and myself. Not a drop of rain descended from the heavens as we slumbered peacefully deep in the northeast of Morazan. We wash up and then take a donation to Miguel before we opt for a refreshing ... Read more >

EL SALVADOR | Fri, 3 Feb 2012 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [463]

Within a few days I went through perhaps the ugliest border crossing I've ever seen (Penas Blancas) to perhaps the most beautiful, and that's the crossing into northeastern El Salvador! It's a beautiful setting high in the mountains with a log cabin-... Read more >

The time has finally come—our last full day in Ecuador. The day after our excursion to Isla de la Plata, we flew back to Quito so we could catch a plane the following day for home. Flying from Manta to Quito is a difference of over 9000 feet, which ... Read more >

Whales, boobies, and sea turtles (oh my!)...

ECUADOR | Tue, 20 Sep 2011 | By colleen_finn | Views [546]

After enjoying a week playing on the beach and in the surf, we opted to spend our last day on Ecuador's coast in Puerto Lopez, a sleepy fishing town about two hours south of Manta. It wasn't really the town we were interested in, but a trip to Isla ... Read more >

ECUADOR | Sun, 18 Sep 2011 | By colleen_finn | Views [395]

There are challenges, and there are challenges. For example, not speaking the language is a challenge. Learning a new sport while trying to overcome a phobia that I've had since childhood is an entirely different challenge. I mentioned in my first ... Read more >

ECUADOR | Fri, 9 Sep 2011 | By colleen_finn | Views [411]

It's inevitable that I have my favorites. It happens every time and there's no rhyme or reason to it. I have several this time, but I think the most special is Vanessa, who I've already mentioned. She's mentally sharp, but trapped in a body contorted ... Read more >

Un dia en la vida...

ECUADOR | Thu, 8 Sep 2011 | By colleen_finn | Views [365]

The neighbor's rooster is confused. Muy confundido. At 1:30 in the god-forsaken morning, he begins notifying all within earshot that dawn is at hand—a full 3.5 hours before the first rays of sun make their timid appearance. Soon after, the neighborhood's ... Read more >

ECUADOR | Tue, 6 Sep 2011 | By colleen_finn | Views [363]

This is going to be a challenge. This is my fifth volunteer trip. Of those five, only twice did I actually do the job for which I applied. It's funny how that works, but it's yet another instance in which you must 'go with the flow.' Well this time, ... Read more >

It has been fifty years since the victory of the Cuban revolution. Havana - the city and the people - do not seem to have changed much. In this picture a woman "plowing" her window plants. Battling the effects of time, many of Havana's buildings demonstrate similar deteriorating - crumbling-like conditions.
