Living in a foreign country means that every 6 months or so I need to leave in order to renew my visa. That’s the case in Mexico, so in January, and by way of an amazing birthday present from Leslie, I went to Guatemala. It was significant in many ways, but perhaps most significant was the fact that it was my 50th country. Not a bad effort, but there’s still a long way to go. It’s not the numbers, exactly, but it means I’ve been to 50 wonderfully different and rewarding places on our beautiful planet.
In just 10 short days I visited a diversity of places, far too many for one blog post. So I’ll start with my first stop, the chilled yet vibrant island of Flores. With just a couple of days in Flores, the base for jaunts to Tikal, I simply lazed about on the tiny island and did what everybody else does…had cold beers on the waterfront and watched the stunning sunsets.
