January 24 We drove to Rio Dulce, Guatemala.
|Belize - Guatemala border||On the Guatemala side||The sky looked ominous|
|Quiet everywhere||even the pigs were asleep||very patient vultures...|
|Then the sun came out...||Here we are: Rio Dulce||The main street|
|A public toilet||An Internet Cafe||Plastic flamingoes|
|Boats at our hotel||and Canadians everywhere!!!|
January 25 We drove from Rio Dulce, through Guatemala City directly to Antigua.
|Good roads||Sarita's restaurant||first sight of Guatemala City|
|there is the flag||10 minutes of traffic jam||and out again...|
January 26 An earthquake flattened Antigua in 1976.
|Ruins of an old church.||Advertisements are not allowed.||This old church is a hospital nowadays|
|Public tanks for washing clothes.||A coffee plant||and a milk fountain?|
|The volcanoes in the area||are somewhat quiet, but||one was rumbling last week...|
January 27 Chiquimula, Guatemala. Almost in Honduras... To the ruins of Copan
|Nothing very interesting,||common streets,||a mixture of old and new.|
