Lessons from Guatemala

Now that I have taken 2 VERY hot baths, scrubbed, given myself a mani/pedi, and plan on getting a spray tan this afternoon… it is time to reflect on my time in Guatemala.  It was seriously one of the most insanely hilarious times of my life, and I would do it again. Seriously.

My time in Guatemala was insane.  I had so many experiences that I can’t wait to share with you but the first thing I feel I should share, are the things I learned from Guate.

1. My Spanish capabilities are seriously lacking.  In a big way.

2. Chicken buses or “camioneta” is the most hilariously insane way to travel.  I sat next to a goat, got a bus with a driver that I am pretty sure was three sheets to the wind and pounding everclear while driving, and so much more.  I am still laughing hard at the bus rides, I had all my co-workers laughing HARD yesterday at my stories.

3. Parrots speak Spanish.

4. You have NO idea how much work goes into a single cup of coffee, so if you are drinking coffee right now, you need to reflect on that.

5.  I am out of shape.

6. I will never eat chicken again.

7.  I am a Gringa.

8.  Guatemalan Nyquil is NOTHING like American Nyguil.

9.  Showers in Guatemala are nothing like showers in America.

10.  Look both ways before you cross into a street… Twice in fact three times might not even be enough.

Yes every single one of these statements have a story.   I had one of the best times last week.   I will share my stories in the coming weeks, but for now here is one of the first pictures I took.


Until Next Time,
