Sadness All Around

  Devastation has hit Guatemala. This weekend the Volcan de Fuego (Volcano of Fire) experienced its most powerful eruption in over a decade. Unfortunately many people have lost their lives while those who have homes nearby have lost everything they own.

Arrived Safe and Sound

Greetings all. Arrived safe and sound in Guatemala. Great flights and very smooth sailing (or flying that is). Love going through El Salvador compared to the horrible experiences we had with Miami airport and US Customs the first 3-4 years I came here! Off for supper - it's only 6 20 here but I'm hungry and tired.  Takes a few days to adjust but my Nov. trip will not be quite as tough because we change time at the end of this month and Guatemala
