Greetings from Guatemala! Crossing the border, I realized that twelve years after I first touched down in Belize, I have now visited every country in Central America. I can’t wait to discover this sixth piece of the puzzle — and then to start over and visit them all again for the second and third times, because this is a region I just can’t seem to get enough of.
I spent my first week in the country crashing with my friend Luke in Antigua. This charming but chilly colonial city was a great base for getting a ton of writing done, and a perfect launch pad for break time adventures to Hobbitenango (yes, this is a real place) and Volcán Pacaya. But I have to admit… I miss the beach. Here’s hoping that Lake Atitlán, my next stop, provides a fresh water salve to my aquatic addiction.
In the meantime, here’s Photo of the Week!
