    Ye he looks all selling sweets cakes and stuff. Except he is actually selling weed brownies:lol3

    We went to Kay Caulker the small island off the coast of Belize city. It's a goofy place to swim with sharks and all sorts of sea creatures. And ofcourse it's full of raunchy hot youngsters with more money than brains and a lust for life...

    We ended deciding to spend Christmas with @goodcat and Philip at lake Petén Itzá and a small village called El Remate. Walk to town buy beer, walk back and swim in the crystal clear luke warm water of the lake. That's basically how it went for nearly a week and a half. But it allowed us time to visit Tikal and in the process made friends with some other travellers.

    I have to admit from all the ruins we have seen the Tikal ruins were the most impressive and enjoyable. Not as overrun with tourist and a huge place to stroll for teh best part of a day. And they were impressive to say the least.

    Climb up a long staircase onto one of the pyramids overlooking the forest canopy. It is an amazing view and leaves one flabbergasted at the engineering that went into those colossal structures the Mayans erected so many thousands of years ago.

    For Christmas day Philip baked us Swiss Carrot cake. :super

    Another great episode with superb photos and it's always worth the wait.
    El Remate is one of the best locations in Guatemala as far I am concerned. It's beautiful and peaceful and not touristy. Plus it's a great base for so many ruins in this area haha. I'll be back to see more of them.... El Mirador and Rio Bec jungle hikes top the list. Plus so many more...
    I'm glad you saw Tikal... Now you can say you've seen the Best haha

    All the best to you both amigo's

    Guatemala turned out to be a lot different than we expected in a number of ways.

    The general thinking and some misconceptions from people in developed countries are that less developed countries only comprise poor people and everything not on their standard are then bad.
    As example comments we got in the past, are there still Lions walking around in cities in South Africa? It sounds stupid but believe me it is not uncommon to get these questions. The same as are places safe, and not much else is going on for locals in countries like Guatemala. Men and machetes are like guns in the USA or as common as Leberkase in Germany, except their machetes are a cultural show and for actual work. Some foreigners seeing men walking with machetes immediately think it's dodgy and unsafe. It was a surprise to see that along the normal run of the mill day to day lives of most Guatemalans there are also different income classes and actually a big middle class.

    Amazingly about a year or so ago Guatemalans got to so fed up with their corrupt government they had peaceful protest for weeks and in the end the president and his boy club got the chop. Things are still not all that well in Guatemala from what we talk to locals but they have hope for the future.

    But Guatemala is one kick ass cool country to travel. Apparently something like 70% of their roads are still dirt roads. And it's not a flat country. :super

    We were lucky to be invited by a local Guatemala family and from German decent to visit them in Rio Dulce. Rio Dulce Dulce River is part of a lake and river system that has become a popular cruising sailboat destination from the Caribbean.
