Worst case scenario, she will become a sanctuary monkey and will have to remain in captivity at Wildtracks (which isn't really that bad). ...
Totally unplanned but we're here at Tikal at the equinoxe which is really cool as the Mayan temples and their shadows line up. We left the hotel but it was still a bit of a drive. Saw a beautiful sunrise on the way but otherwise we were catching up on our sleep. One of the nicest things about arriving early, like most other sites, is avoiding the throngs of tourists, not to mention the weather is cooler as well. We had a great ...
