Buenos Dias from Guatemala City!

Guatemala, Guatemala


A little bit of breakfast blogging to get things started...

We arrived in Guatelmala City last night after a stopover in Miami. Apparently the clever folks at Miami International Airport are hospitable toward their soldiers, and oblivious to the irony of their acronym (MIA).

Our hotel is beautiful, clean, and airy. We just finished breakfast and wanted to let everyone know that we arrived safely. We're going to walk around Guatemala City today. Our cab driver highly recommends the fried chicken place down the block, so we're going to go on an expedition to see if we can find our way there through the confusing streets. Given my exceptional sense of direction, I've been tasked with being the navigator. If you don't see another post after this one, you'll know that we're still looking for chicken.

There's a market that Melissa is going to make us visit. Can't wait. Stay tuned... The excitement is about to begin.

Chicken and Flan

Guatemala, Guatemala


We found the chicken place, "Pollo Campero" -- it's Senor Sanders Guatemala style. No nuclear cole slaw, but instead you get flan. Speaking of the food, it's not much to write home about (and yet here we are).

And before anyone pokes fun at us for eating at a fast food joint in Guatemala City, the options are limited here. On a Sunday, it's either this or Taco Bell (where the tagline is "Got a bean emergency?").

We walked through Guatemala City yesterday. Everything is closed on Sundays except the central market. It's a dusty town with a few unique architectural "gems".


The hole in the ozone layer has found its way down to Guatemala. Our February skin couldn't take the 20 degree weather.

Yes, mom. We're going to wear sunscreen and hats now.

Corey, as always when travelling, is a walking freak show. He's the tallest guy in the country by about a foot, the only one who can grow a beard. His hairline is unique to the point where little children stare. Melissa's average height (for a dude).

Off to Antigua.
