Where I stayed
Black Cat Hostel
But then...Leave house at 6:50am on Tuesday morning to go to work. Realize that 50degrees feels FREEZING to me in Tucson. Wednesday decide to change allllllll of my plans.
Cancel EVERYTHING for Xela (it rains everyday right now and will only get colder).
Prepare for San Pedro la Laguna except THIS TIME I find a shuttle to get me to Panajachel and that is it. Ahhhh, I feel so much more relieved, excited and ready for an adventure:)
Basically, don't over prepare. It will all work out the way it is supposed to. Granted with a bunch of cancellations. Also, I didn't need to half the amount of clothes I'm bringing but the crazy heavy amount of extras including toiletries etc. I decided that, except for tampons and condoms, everything else I could get where I'm going. Especially somewhere referred to as "Gringotenango" even if it has only one bank with an unreliable ATM.
As I told a friend who wants to go to Africa today "get the ticket, buy traveler's insurance and go"
Tonight is my last night with my cats for 6 months:( But it is also the second to last night in the United States for 6 months:) and before I leave to Guatemala:). Holy crap, I'm leaving to Guatemala!!!!!!
