  • Tikal

    Here’s a post-trip post. Mostly it’s an excuse to put up some photos of Tikal. This place was the original reason that I decided to come to Guatemala. I’m glad I did, as it’s been a very positive experience for me, and I think also that I’ve had a positive impact on the people of […]

  • Dos Boletos

    I’m still in Guatemala at the language school. It’s been a terrific experience and I expect that I will come back here to study in the future. My host family is great, and I will definitely miss them when I leave. I stayed here for the New Year’s holiday, and I’m now planning to go […]
