Relaxing after a big drive, the mini Mexico beds are not made for tall boys.
Just a small part of the 2km uphill hike.
This is the biggest and most impressive waterfall. There is one more observation deck higher up but we couldn’t take any pictures as we were getting so wet.
These are Aztec ruins just outside of Comitan, Tenam Puente. All kinds of amazing history, human sacrifice, massive ball courts and impressive pyramids. This is the view from the hilltop of the ruins looking down on the town below. During easter they march from the town, up to the top of this hill to the cross in the next picture.
After the ruins and before we went to the lagoons the next day we stayed at a little cabana called Pino Feliz, or Happy Pine. There were some really cute kids there and we made the awful mistake of buying them some icecream, they were the most hyper brats after that.
Pino Feliz was also home to some week old puppies we got to play with.
The youngest girl, Papaya.
My favorite puppy, Captain Mo.
The little brats with their icecream.
Sandi having a dance party.
These are the lagoons of Chiapas, we took an hour horse ride around them, ouch, sore butt.
So this is a few days later in Guatemala. This fountain was staring at us as we ate breakfast.
In Antigua, Guatemala we stayed with a family who fed us 3 times a day! It was amazing. This bird of paradise just bloomed while we were staying here.
This is a view from the front of our host house, the busses in Guatemala are a sight to be seen. All old school buses with Jesus slogans and super flashy hood ornaments race through the streets.
The central market in Antigua. The second stall on the left is full of meat, nobody in Mexico/Guatemala has caught on to the refrigeration of meat thing yet…
This is the main cathedral in the central park of Antigua. I’m flanked by our two extremely short Spanish teachers, Rosa and Celia.
This was our dinner table with our family. Thomas, Casper, Maria and Pamila were from Denmark, Areceli our host is at the head. This is Volcano Pacaya just outside of Guatemala city. The hike up this thing is HARD! As soon as our bus pulled up to the base we were swarmed by kids yelling “STICK STICK STICK!” So we felt compelled to buy one, gracias dios (thank god) we did because walking on loose lava rocks is hard.
This was our Valentines day, back in Puerto Escondido. We made a reservation at a hotel for dinner and they gave us fancy baloons and everything. We were very impressed. Here’s Sandi enjoying the wonders of 2*1 happy hour. Yummy Pina Coladas.
We’re currently back in Puerto Escondido staying here for a month. We rented a big fat house and today Ryan Hodgson gets here. In 3 more days Justine and Dustin get here so we’ve got a big month ahead of us.
