From Oaxaca we made our way to Zapatista territory to visit some ruins. The ruins were great but the road to get there was fantastic. These little volkswagens are everywhere (two of them on this shot)..





All in all we had a great time in the country except for these, which were everywhere...



As well as these.....



So it was time to head to Guatemala where there was lots of this....



Before leaving Montreal we had decided that we would take the time to learn spanish. We weren't sure where but as soon as we arrived in Guatemala we started hearing about a Spanish school in Todos Santos Cuchumatan. This is a small village surrounded by mountains fairly close to the Mexican border. We decided to check it out and ended up staying a month. While there we lived with a local family. This is a shot of the kitchen in the house we called home for a while.



And a shot of the family....



Even Marie tried her hand at cooking....



More in a bit....
