Photo above taken this afternoon on bus ride from Guatemala City to Xela
I made it. I’m here in one piece. Barely. I forgot how exhausting travel can be especially when you barely speak the language. I chose this picture for my first post on Guatemala because it illustrates how I feel. Completely disoriented.
I will write more later about the trip. I am extremely tired. Just wanted to send you a little postcard from my day. Of course I took tons of photos from my front seat in the bus. There will be an entire post on my first day no worries. It was that interesting.
Yet now it is time to try to get some sleep before I start my spanish classes tomorrow morning. I obviously need it. I could not understand a thing being said tonight at the dinner table. It was a lonely feeling. Thankfully my host family is wonderful and I don’t think they thought I was an idiot for my poor mastery of the language. Oh well.
Stay tuned….it is a lovely city surrounded by haunting volcanoes! I may just have to take a side trip….
