Your 57 Chevy was lovely
Great that your sister could join you. Lobster coma.... I think I had lobster several days in a row while we were there. We were in Havana for New Years so music was everywhere. Trinidad was one of our favorites places and you are right about all of the music.

Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories of Guatemala, Caye Caulker and Tulum! Great photos, and as usual, you've got some great adventures! Look forward to Cuba with you!

The aptly named "shark and ray alley"

Glad someone enjoys reading through and looking through the photos in these blogs!! I know that in years to come they'll be a great source of pride/amusement as my memories fade!! They've certainly already re-jigged the memories of some of my earliest travels!! Cheers Mark

The amazing pools of Semuc Champey

Great adventures!
I love this photo and your amazing adventures. Bravo for really focusing on your Spanish, so you're almost at native level. Good show!

A Good Read
I enjoyed reading this, not only for the fact that I found someone writing on El Salvador (I also haven't met anyone who's been there - and I've been in Latin America for 2 years!), but I had a good laugh from time to time. I'm currently in Costa Rica and will be getting to El Salvador in a few weeks, so it was good to get a little insight into the place via your blog.

I'll go there!
Thanks for the tips on where to stay and hike in El Salvador--looks as if you picked a couple of great spots. Loved your photos of the crater lake and dusk above Suchitoto! Buen viaje!

Anteater - looks like he'd had a tough day!!

What a great photo.
Glad you enjoyed Costa Rica and found places off the tourist path to keep you happy.

Great blog!
You've brought back some great memories for us. I can do without the guinea pig. I tried it in a stew but couldn't get past the thought of it. I don't care for rodents. Sounds like you're making great progress in your language skills. How fortunate that you were added to the hike. Can't wait to read more.

When I started reading this update, I became a little worried that food would only be alluded to obliquely rather than being the main event, as it were. Then coming upon the Fray Bentos factory description, I decided that maybe I didn\'t want to know about the food at all (I\'ve previously witnessed someone, voluntarily, cooking and eating Fray Bentos pies, and as a person who views food as something to enjoy and possibly even savour, this memory of gloopy pie crust dough and murky meat bits has haunted me somewhat over the years...). So I thank you for then rewarding our faithful reading by including a photo of a nice juicy steak and a lovely description. Yes that is indeed something that cannot be captured, even with a panorama, scratch-and-sniff lens, (I am told those are quite dear) no, one must really be there for that, or so I am told...

Smells of Anglo-American imperialism. We Brits show the world the way in traffic rules, traffic lights, culinariy delights, and happiness standards. Why don't we Brits ever think that of the fact that we do not own the world and, for heaven's sake, allow people to exist, cook, and enjoy life on their own terms, without us ever forcing the borders of our comfort zones on them. After all, this isn't the world according to anglo-americans.

I'm currently planning my trip to Borneo and am planning to go to all the places you just mentioned (minus climing Mt. KK). I plan to check out Sarawak as well. Did you do day trips to Taman Rahman park or did you do an overnight stay?? I hear it's expensive to visit those islands.

Not an Albatross
The picture entitled 'Albatross(?)" ... hail to the question mark, that is certainly not an albatross.

Dodgy facial hair and Chrimbo cookery
How can you post such photos without mention of the glaringly obvious attempts at "traveller rugged"? Also, I like the "fruits of OUR afternoon behind the stove". I remember Chris cooking...

Oh and just checked your picture of the capuchino monkeys. haha they're squirrel monkeys or just 'Amarillo' in spanish (yellow as I rememer...). Capuchins, not capuchino's are the little brown ones and the most intelligent monkeys in SA.
