Spanish Studies

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

I learnt my lesson in San Pedro and this time I have asked for 1 Spanish lesson before I sign up for the whole week. It went pretty well and my teacher is a lot more conversational than my last one. So I will start next week as well as helping out with computers at […]

Monte Rico (Monterrico)

Friday, February 27th, 2009

It was a beautiful ride and just before Monterrico I had to put my bike onto a skip for a 30 minute ferry through the mangroves. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to manoeuvre my bike but Julio had said that once I took of my helmet I would have 10 blokes helping […]

Hammock Time

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

You all might think that I am living the life of Riley. Cruising around on my bike, soaking up the sights, no cooking or cleaning, seeing beautiful people and interesting places. But personally I don’t think that I have nearly as much hammock time as I was anticipating. I had thought that most of my […]

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Wednesday morning Julio took me up to the Mixco Viejo (old) Mayan ruins situated on a number of hill tops. Due to the limited access this was one of the last cities to be conquered by the Spanish. We were the only people there and beauty of the hilltop views and the serenity of the […]

Visiting Casa Alianza Guatemala

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Out of all the things that I have done so far visiting Casa Alianza was probably the most daunting. When I arrived they only spoke Spanish to me so I had no idea what they were saying and felt quite uncomfortable. Finally someone took me to the house of teenage mothers and luckily a Swiss […]

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Went I met Sri in Tikal he said that he had taken his Suzuki V-strom into the Suzuki dealership in Guatemala City and they had done an excellent job. So seeing as how my bike had yet to see a Suzuki dealership and I had just hit 14,000 miles I decided to drop it in […]

Coco, Coffee and Condoms

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

The next day we did a tour of the coffee plantation and saw where they shelled, cleaned and sorted the beans using hydro power before they are left to dry. Then we saw the rubber trees which are tapped for the sap which is used to make rubber products and the liquid to make latex. […]

Two Girl's Adventure on a Moto (plus one couple on a bmw)

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

I was heading off to a jungle lodge with my riding amigos from Guate City (thanks to Julio and Lusia for arranging the weekend and putting me up) and as Andres was out of town I left all my luggage in the city and had Karla on the back of my bike. Since being in […]

Slang Situations (Hot and Horny)

Friday, February 20th, 2009

I was invited back to Guatemala City to go for another riding weekend to some Mayan ruins with Julio who is studying the Mayan culture at university so it was an offer that couldn’t be passed up. During dinner I was telling them about being escorted by the police to Antigua and I mentioned that […]

Hot Lava

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

You know when someone tells you that a movie is the best one that they have ever seen and when you see it you are a bit disappointed. Well unfortunately someone told me that Pacaya (an active volcano near Guatemala City) was the coolest thing that they had seen in their lives and inevitably I […]
