Mucho Gusto

It{s been a while!

Last weekend Jonno and I headed out to el zotz, a remote Mayan ruin. Getting there involved some pretty bad roads in the back of a 4by4. I sort of thought we were going to die for a bit but we didn{t which was good. The temples there were much less uncovered than in tikal but still had amazing views. At sunset we did a gruelling hike up to a mirador (lookout) which had an amazing view of the jungle and then went down to the bat wall to watch the bats swarm off for their nightly feast.

I left San andres on wednesday and spent a couple of nights in Rio Dulce and a crazy secluded cabin in Las Canchas before heading down to Honduras yesterday. The cabin in Las Canchas wasm occupied by just three of us plus a guide who took us to an amazing waterfall one of the days. In fact there were waterfalls all around there and it was beautiful. muy tranquillo.

I am now writing from copan, a small town near the border of Honduras and Guatemala. I quite like it here. A parrot bit me today. Some parrots have the ability to exert 1000 pounds of pressure...luckily this one either did not or did not wish to use it all on me. Hooray!

Tomorrow i am off the bay islands where i will hopefully learn to scuba dive.
