Visited an animal wildlife rescue center, talked to the ocelots
Sunday, June 19, 2016      8 comments

Well, I talked, they listened. The parrots and macaws talked to me, saying "Hola! Hola!" It was interesting, it was fun, and it was sort of sad as well. The animals are well taken care of, but I'd rather see them wild and free. This area wa... Read more

Sunday, June 12, 2016      9 comments

We seem to be surrounded by volcanoes here in Guatemala - one of them is smoking and sending out ash. Ah well, at least it isn't rumbling and spewing lava. Though I've never seen that, it might be kind of exciting. From a distance, of course.... Read more

I washed Dad's hat, which has been travelling with us for 2.5 years, and gave it a new hatband. The hat appreciates it, and had fun on his trip to the lake today. Plus I took photos of cute shoeshine boys, and a lady in a store where we bo... Read more

So we're in this little motorized launch, crossing the deepest lake in Central America. And our boat captain gets in a fight with another boat captain. Other guy boards our boat, like a pirate! We end up drifting as they push and shove and ar... Read more
Can't say enough good things about Guatemala!
