Long time, no internet
April 9, 2013 - El Remate, Guatemala
Yes, dear cousin Sally, I do smoke. About 4 a day. Unless I am ratarsed, in which case the count goes up somewhat. Did you not notice me nipping out of your lovely gaffe and into the garden, that time we stayed with you?   Can anyone beat the record for eating 120g of popcorn in one sitting? Yes, dear reader, that pig was me. However, travelling is hard work. I have lost weight. What little arse I did have has totally disappeared. And the wrinkles, oh the wrinkles. Cruel, cruel sun.  ...

A near-death experience?
January 25, 2013 - Santiago Chimaltenango, Guatemala
So, yesterday morning we took a very small boat from one village on the lake to the next. Now, bear in mind that I am a wuss of the first degree.

From Pesos to Quetzals
January 18, 2013 - Panajachel, Guatemala
We are now in Guatemala in a place called Panajachel which is on Lake Atitlan. The scenery is spectacular, the lake being surrounded by three volcanoes. It is hot and sunny by day but a lot cooler at night as the lake is about 1500 metres above sea level. It took about 10 hours to reach here via bus from San Cristobel De La Casas in Mexico, a slow and winding ride through mountainous terrain. We are already missing chilli and lime which you get with everything in Mexico, except tea and...
