    Another long day of minivan travel lay ahead. We start at 6am and are due to arrive at our destination in central Guatemala, a mountain town called Lanquín, at about 5pm. We cross farmland, then a small river on a metal/bamboo ferry in the middle of nowhere. At about midday we stop at a modern shopping centre to eat (a surprisingly good Panini) and to allow the gringo's to get cash out as where we are ...

    Our hostel told us the shuttles to Lanquin ran every hour from 5am, so we got up at 6.30 to catch the 7am shuttle. We were in the shuttle by 6.45... And it didn't leave until 7.50 - still with us as the only passengers! We survived the bumpy ride with a door that was held closed with a rope rather than shutting properly, and made it to Zephyr Hostel by 10am. The hostel is beautiful, with a lovely pool on a high ...

    ... sort of person that you could easily talk to about everything and anything, and so we did. She insisted that I speak to her in the informal "tú" form instead of "Ud", which I had difficulty remembering out of habit. We touched upon so many subjects within those 25 hours. I felt totally comfortable conversing with her on any topic that came to mind. Naturally, much of our conversation was medically based due to my field of study.

    ... All nicely squeezed in we rounded the corner and believe it or not there is apparently always room for 3 more in Guatemala. Enter a very annoying, loud French guy. Needless to say he was not happy about the fact he also had a lovely stool for the 8 hour journey and so the argument continued with the driver, bus owner, travel agent and anyone else who would listen! Its Guatemala dude-  get on & suck it up!! 10am we are on the road. He turned ...
