2 years 2 long!
Please don't wait two years to write another blog! Tikal has been on our want to see list for years but your blog makes it feel more urgent. Thanks for sharing your impressions. We are glad you left the beach for a bit more exploring.

Hi Dave and Merry J
I only just realised how long it was, really!!! Time flies and we have so much to catch up on:-) New adventures are planned already and we have not even told the end of the story, not to mention the fab 2014 travels!!! yes, the exploring comes first always but beach blogs are to come as well!!! B

Nice Blog
Nice blog and photos. I did Tikal 18 months ago and have fond memories. You will both be pleased to hear that I took walking shoes with me :)

Hi Alan
thank you, that is very nice of you:-) yes, the remark on the shoes was just for an extra humour but to be honest some people could not be bothered with seeing how great this place was:-) B

Keep them coming...
you are almost done. And the TB rule is that you can't go on another trip until you finish blogging the last one...just kidding!
2nd February 2015

thanks :-)
That is one great rule!!! The plan is to finish them soon as we have so much more to blog about from our 2014 travels plus 2015 trips are planned already as well :-) B&T

The Grand Plaza

Great adventure!
How wonderful that you made the long trek to Tikal, got there early before the tour buses (yikes!), climbed all the pyramids and properly explored the place! Love the B & W shot that looks as if maybe you were one of the first explorers, and well as again seeing those little, long-tailed bandits, the coati, which I only saw at Iguasu Falls. 37 ago, as a student, I lived in a hammock and worked there and in the jungle with archaeologists for six weeks. So much has changed (Flores, a tourist town?), but with your intrepid approach, you also got to see the real thing! Well-done!

Life is an education
So excited for you that you are learning some more spanish. We'd love to take the time to do that but we have not done it yet. Sounds like you picked a great place to study. Your photos are amazing as always. Your stories makes me want to send them some sugar and candy.

walking

thank you
good to hear from you Dave and Merry:-) Yes, we enjoyed our stay a lot but really it was a combination of things:the classes, spending so much time with local people,the stories, the food etc Shame we don't use Spanish more often here in UK:-( we could do with some practice haha thanks for reading, B&T

Really fascinating anecdote about the sugar. It's sad how so many local communities that produce such goods cannot afford it themselves. Good luck with the classes -- they sound challenging and enlightening and you are really tempting me to just pick up our family and head out there. ;)

Hi Michelle
yes, the sugar story I will always remember although it was one of the milder ones she told me...we have been tempted with going away again since we came back to UK... life is not the same anymore and so much still to see in the world hahha thanks for reading, B&T

It's incredible how the former empires of the world left traces on the territories they seized. That's why there is one Leon in Nicaragua and one in Spain and why Curacao's architecture resembles that of Netherlands.

Scary Gangsta & Beautiful History
Was glad that everything turned out alright for you guys in Tegucigalpa. Simply love the pictures and the write up of Copan Ruinas. The additional info is really useful for those during land trips there. Looking forward to your trip in Guatemalas. Have lots of fun!! (^_^)

The ruins in Central America and the Caribbean islands are definitely worth visiting. We should be more aware of the fact that the mayas had a higher knowledge of things than we have.

Copan Ruinas

Yummy ruins and tacos
Gorgeous photos of the ruins and the tacos! Given the unsavory nature of the capital, would it be better to go from Nicaragua to El Salvador and to Copan from there?

Copan Ruinas

Hi there
thanks Tara:-) We heard even worse things about El Salvador so not sure hahha Unfortunately you have to pass through one or another if you don't want to fly:-( Now that we think about the whole trip, it was not so bad and definitely worth the stop:-) cheers, B&T

Ruins and gunfire
Know one could make this stuff up...crazy things going on around the world. Glad you were safe and had an armed escort. The ruins sound perfect. Looking forward to your next adventure.
