    We had a charging problem with the hand held camera this morning. Here is some photos Modesta took from the moto with her telephone till we got the other camera charged up.

    I went through in about six hours one time. I was in the Yucatan and wanted to go to Tikal in Guatemala. It was much quicker to cut across Belize.

    We could not find a hotel on the island with secure parking for the moto! So, we went back to the mainland and found one for less than 35% of the prices on the island.

    ¡No pudimos encontrar un hotel en la isla con estacionamiento seguro para la moto! Entonces, volvimos al continente y encontramos uno por menos del 35% de los precios en la isla.

    Modesta's comments for Jan 1:

    Hola!! Hoy fue un dia muy bueno gracias Dios cruzamos la fronte de Guatemala, sin ningun contra tiempo todo salio bien en unos cuantos minutos ya estabamos dentro de ese pais, muy bonito todo el camino sus campos verdes las casitas aborde de carretera con una laguna, nos dirijiamos a un lugar llamado la isla un pequeño pueblito dentro de esa isla, pero como no encontramos hotel con estacionamiento para la moto nos tuvimos que quedar en el pueblo grande, descansamos un rato y nos salimos a caminar un buen rato, a una gran plaza cerca de una lagunas... donde me senti muy relajada y observando todo lo bello que es la naturaleza!!

    Hello!! Today was a very good day, thank God! We crossed the borders of Belize/Guatemala, without any problems. Everything went well and in a few minutes we were in Guatemala. Guatemala is very beautiful! Its green fields, the houses on the road, with a lagoon. We headed to a place called the Flores Island. There is a small town on that island, but since we did not find a hotel with parking for the motorcycle, we had to stay in the main town. We rested for a while and went for a long walk, to a large square near a lagoon ... where I felt very relaxed, observing all the beauty of nature!
