a quickie

Hi ladies and gents,
currently in Guatemala, the pueblo of Comalapa to be exact, with my cousns and a friend of ours who is an intern at the community deveopment grassroots project Long Way Home (where we are volunteers for this week). It has been a wild ride. Asa quick recap.
After San Cristobal I headed to Palenque and sa the ruins, then across the frontera by way of shuttle-boat-bus to Flores, Gatemala. Saw the ruins at Tikal while there, then went to the Disney-esque place of Antigua. After Antigua two friends and I went to Playa el Tunco (aka La Libertad) in El Savador...coast of the Pacific! Then back to Guatemala, picked up my cousins in Guatemala City, and we chicken bussed it to Comalapa thgrough Chimaltenango and Zaragoza. On the weekend we went to Santiago on the endge of Lake Atitlan, and got akll the way back through the hills in the back of a camion (pick up truck).
Whew. They are leaving tomorrow, my pans are still un certain.
Thinking Honduras and Nicaragua next!
Love, more later,
