- Arrived in Guatemala City
- Edgar, best cab driver in the city, drove us to and around Antigua helping us find our Airbnb house.
- Ate at La Fonda de la Calle Real. Super delicious Guatemalan food that really hit the spot. Interesting notes: Bill Clinton ate here… we saw his picture on the wall with the staff.
- Coolest housemate we could ask for, Stacy, gave us a tour of the city.
- We signed up for Spanish school.
- I saw a volcano burp today… basically a big dark cloud puffed out of the top.
- Went to a dinner party at our new Spanish school. I learned how to Sala dance and Dan met some really cool entrepreneurs.
- First day of Spanish school – Our classes are four hours long and we each have our own private teacher. Seriously, I learned more in four hours than a whole year of high school! My teacher was very patient with me, even when I kept pronouncing her name as “ice cream” in Spanish.
- We had Spanish class again today. I’m feeling a little fried but, I’ve successfully learned how to conjugate verbs and know several phrases.
- For the first time, I ordered my own food in Spanish and the waiter understood me!!!
- We felt an earthquake today… It made me feel kinda of seasick. It lasted a good minute.
- Today there was a big event in Guatemala where thousands of people held hands and walked up the volcano to form a heart. In the late afternoon and evening the streets were blocked off for bands and street vendors. Dan and I walked around to soak in all the city had to offer.
- Dan and I learned that a red light over ones door means they have tamales… not what the red light typically stands for in most other places.
- To finish the night, we went out for a glass of wine… Life is good 🙂
- Well… that’s it so far 🙂
