Hola.. im waiting for my bus to Guatemala City and then onwards to Copan, Hondurus.. i visited tikal yesterday and it was amazing. i went to every temple and i saw lots of wildlife. This was probably the best part of my trip so far.

After Xela i went to Antigua for a night and 2 days. I found Antigua very touristy and expensive. it was not my favourite city. It was still interesting to walk around and look at all the colonial buidings. For dinner i had the cheapest and best dinner i have had since i got here. I was reading my book at the plaza waiting for my bus to come. I saw this daughter and mother seting up this little cooking station in front of the plaza. After a while i got hungry and walked over and asked what they wer cooking. They said they were paposas and they had no meat in them. I ordered one and it was soooooo good. I ended up ordering 3 more and it ended up costing me about 4Q for each one so thats about 2 bucks in total for 4 paposas and a salad and some salsa. It was by far the best meal i have had since i got here. After that i caugh my bus and headed to Flores and Tikal. This bus ride took 8 hrs and i slept the whole way. At about 4am or something like that these cops pulled the bus over and searched it and made all the males exit the bus. It was kinda annoying but in about 15 mins it was over and i went back to slep. I arived in Flores Guatemala at 5am and got to my hotel at 6 am and got a shuttle to Tikal at 7 am. I spent all day in Tikal visiting all the buidlings and stuff. It was again my favourite part in Guatemala so far. After tha i came back to Flores and eat dinner. After i write this im going to the bus station and organizing how i am gonig to get to Copan. I will probably post again when i have arrived in the Bay Islands.

I have upload some pics
