I bought a mango (5Q. 40p) and wandered around the moving stalls - there were now even more. Floods of people were heading this way.

It was great to be a part of the Christmas celebrations back home via skype throughout the afternoon and evening, eating our watermelon and raisin toast with everyone else. We had a nice dinner out, then watched a Christmas film while drinking traditional Guatemalan ...
