Travel Blogs from Guatemala City
As we left for our trip, I was undecided if I would do a blog. I know that many people like to read it, but it does take up a lot of time to write down what we are doing. But after our flight from home to Guatemala, I decided that at the very least, I had to write about our trip to Guatemala.
We have made many trips to Latin America in …

You have to love them to look at them though they are old American school buses jazzed up with some crazy bright paintwork ...
... that we entered Guatemala and lucky for us there was no fee involved (which was a surprise to our new friend, so I think that perhaps the people in the office took pity on us).
The 'Santiago Hostel' was decent enough for one night as well...definitely not the Crown Plaza though :)
Now we are about to finally get on the bus that will take us to Costa Rica, fingers crossed there's nothing that goes wrong this time! :)
