if you are visiting guatemala, you absolutely must see antigua. it is a lovely city, full of old buildings and older ruins, cafes, bookstores, and nice hotels. however, if you are travelling around the country, excluding tikal, don't buy any souvenirs here, they are ridiculously expensive. it is also by far the most expensive place to sleep and eat in the country.
off with jane (woohoo!) to explore some more of the pueblos around the lake starting tomorrow.
a coup in honduras, wow.
all michael jackson all the time on the news because he died, meh.
