a "microbus" in central america is a 12 person van with 16 people crammed into it, or more if they are small. it took 3 of these and 6 hours to get to coban from chichi today, across some of the most beautiful country and some of the worst roads i have seen in guatemala. when they finish, the stretch between uspantan and coban will be wonderful, but for now it's lumpy, muddy dirt with the occasional mud patch and construction zone thrown in.

the mountains are gorgeous, pine covered, overlooking cloud filled valleys.

my butt hurts.
