I spent a fair bit of the afternoon -- after recovering from the ordeal of trying to make myself (haltingly) understood at customs, changing money, taxi, hotel -- walking around. I bought a book, some postcards, and did a lot of people watching. It´s strange to think that just this morning I was in Boston!
Tomorrow, I head to Quetzaltenango on an early bus (if all goes as planned), and then Sunday, I meet my homestay family. With luck, I´ll get a seat on the bus and not have to stand for 4 hours :)
I could go on and on, but my main goal here was to get online and let folks know I´m safe and sound, if somewhat disbelieving at the things I get myself into :)
