When you’re in one place for a couple weeks, you eventually develop a routine. With Mitchell around, the idea of wild adventure travelling was pretty much thrown out of the equation.

Semana Santa Antigua Guatemala 2015 … Good Friday is done

RIS_9960-S

It’s 8pm and the drums are still going. If you’re looking to sleep during Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala … you’re looking in the wrong place. At least, our accommodations aren’t in the middle of the preparations or celebrations, but the cymbals and drums are !@$$! annoying, especially since they aren’t very good. This is really the first time, I’ve ...
