one of 100000 we passed on way out of Guat City to Antigua
Flying into Guat city, is was more beautiful than i thought. Lots of greenery. I like greenery.
Cab ride was fun, dodged lots and lots of buses. Lots of black exhaust spewing buses.
Antigua is incredible. I love the architecture and the hustle/bustle, and the beautiful mountainous greenery every direction you look. Add the surrounding 3 volcanoes - Agua, Acatenango, and Fuego (which recently erupted and killed some people as you might have seen on the news). The streets are alive with people going every direction, and every block is endless restaurants, bars, and shops with lots of cool cheap stuff. I know its just my first day so I'll try to keep the feelings of awesomeness in perspective, I'm sure it will wear off but I've met several people so far who came for a short trip and now are at 1 year. I feel like I've used all 200 spanish words I know twice over. Lindz should be arriving in La Ceiba about now.... she'll join here in a week. Hotel has wireless, but it doesn't reach to my room. Working in the lobby now, will hit a string of coffee shops tomorrow. Rough job.
