Guatemala Heart of the Mayan Empire

Guatemala is fascinating. The scenery is beautiful and the Mayan people erected vast edificies before the discovery of the new world.

Working for my Tortillas

Sometime's we concentrate on the negatives and we don't focus on the positives in our life. Some of us may hate our jobs but just try lugging a heavy rickshaw for a living. Yes it is an honest living, but man is it embarrassing. Man, atleast I don't have to struggle here in America.

And then there is Antigua!

Most likely you will spend some time in Antigua.
