Our room was lovely, very hot, but we still really enjoyed our stay. I think rooms on the first floor were a little cooler. The onsite cafe served lovely drinks and the communal courtyard was sweet

... We call it "the gringo trail" because we are all going together through Central America and you see the same people over and over again. Anyways Oliver. He is from England (obviously) haha because for some reason we only make friends with English people and he is travelling "until his money runs out" and he started with 55000, so I think he is good for a while. We saw him in Flores, Tikal, Semuc champey hostel, and now our hostel ...

Tomorrow we start our placements. Trish, mom, Allison and I will start at a school/ daycare for children of the dump. We have a painting project for part of the day and we will hang with the children the other part of the day. More details to follow. ¡Buenas ...
... into a valley. As we got to the top of the pass we had a good view of the city but didn't stop for pictures. Antigua is a picturesque colonial town with cobble stone streets. We were delayed on our way to the hotel by an Easter procession going through the streets. Easter is the big holiday here and we are extremely lucky to have arrived today as the whole town is in festival mode. We finally got to the hotel, checked in and were able to change out of our transit ...
