Guatemala: this river we had to cross

The smell of Guatemala

From the west to the east, from Pacific to Caribbean sea, sometimes for 3 days without asphalt… Guatemala is not only those “places-to-be” from the travel guides but much much more, somewhere between one village and another.

Yes, sometimes it’s worth to get up before the sunrise and have an adventure of a month: the breakfast on the top of 1300 year-old-temple in one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya world.

Crowded Antigua

Would be strange not to visit Antigua, an old capital of Guatemala. But it’s so full of students of language schools that is already a bit annoying.

That was the first time when changed our mind and didn’t take our own car for a day trip. Was a good decision. Those crazy, bumpy 11 kilometres took a while but at the end… there was again a bit of paradise.

Let’s eat a soup together

The Mayan family of 14: mama, papa and 12 kids. And only 3 of them are going to school. Why? Because they don’t have money… for school uniforms… We shared a pod of soup and a few dreams.
