Merry Christmas everybody. I’m headed out tomorrow to San Andrés, Guatemala. It’s near Flores on Lake Petén Itzá. It’s also close to Tikal which is one of the largest Mayan sites. I’ll be studying Spanish for a few hours each day at a school called Eco-Escuela where I’ll be staying with a local family. I won’t have Internet access in San Andrés, but I’ll try to check e-mail and update this blog every few days in nearby Flores. I plan to cram as much Spanish into my brain as I can in one week, but if it goes well and I can take interesting side trips, I might spend more time there.
