Hola mis amigos!
We have safely arrived in Guatemala and enjoying our time in Antigua. Our first night, our hotel was located above a club, where there was also construction on the roof beginning VERY early in the morning. Let´s just say it wasn´t the relaxing first night in guatemala that we hoped for. The second and third night we were in a much better hostal for 6$ a night. We have been exploring antigua, which is an amazing (but touristy) colonial town. Lots of ruins, and surpisingly lots of american and european food including pizza. Yesterday we climbed Volcan Pacaya (8,000 feet) at sunset, spectacular views and we could feel the steam rising from the volcano surface. Tomorrow we are moving on to Xela, which a more authentic Mayan town where we are going to do a language school for a week (which we both desperately need, especially sarah who constantly looks to peter when somone addresses her in spanish).
Hasta Luego y mucho love
