Guatemala - May 2015

We took a ten-day tour of Guatemala. Tikal had long been on my list, this tour just fit within my already booked trip to Yucat√°n, and although it was almost too late, we were able to sign up for the tour.

It went very well, and despite a rainy forecast, there was hardly any rain. We saw Tikal and other Mayan ruins, several cities and villages, lakes, mountains, volcanoes, and interesting hotels.

Our tour guide gave lessons in Guatemala history, politics, and current events. When that was too much, there was the scenery.

As usual, I ate too much and exercised too little, but other than that, we had a great time.
