Food Stalls and `JPhotographs

Spanish keyboards are different from those at home so i´ll need you to bear with me.

I have finally arrived in Guatemala! Horray! Èxiting the airport was completely nuts and involved me feeling like i had walked in a sauna. There were soooo many people waiting and we really didn´t know where we were going. We attempted to have an adventure and take a chicken bus but we needed quetzal chànge for that and had none so we took a shuttle to Antigua where we are staying tonight.

I´m finding hostelling kind of strange and hard to meet people. I´m not sure if it´s because I´m travelling with someone or because of a general lack of social graces but I ´m hoping it will get better.

Today is Easter Sunday and it is a fantastic celebration in Antigua. There was a float and a giant parade and the`y strew coloured sawdust in the streest. Much fun.

I also ate the best mango ever in the whole world today from a street vendor. It had chili powder on it and dear lord was it ever tasty!! And less than a dollar.

Yesterday I was in Seattle at Pike Place market and it is crazy how different the atmosphere at the market here is from there. There was music and people just simply enjoying themselves here. At pike place everyone was just taking pictures and trying not to get stepped on. The streets here also seem to always always have tons of people on them.

But I am exhausted as I have not slept in a couple of days and it is hot here so I will go. Profuse apologies for the disjointedness of this entry.

Much misses. Also to the rats. Tell them Jordan.
