Travel Blogs from Antigua Guatemala
As we finished our break on Wednesday morning, a group of students were looking fearfully into the sky...okay not so fearfully,but gawking...que tal? Fuego Volcano was erupting, now it looks close to town, but it is at least an hour of highway driving to get closer to it. Antigua has been covered in ash from the volcano earlier this year when there was a very large plume of ash and smoke and the wind blew in the right (wrong) direction. This time it made the news.

For me it was good as I had forgotten a few of the basics as it had been so long since I've been on a dance floor. I think the other guys all had fun too, Thomas knows at least two moves, stepping forward and stepping backwards. After class Sabrina got out on the dance floor with the instructor and showed her stuff. We all ...
