Mayan Ladies

These three local ladies are wearing one of the traditional types of clothing here in Guatemala. Also with the compulsory baby on the back.


Mayan statue

This statue is in a small park in Quetzaltenango which is a very pleasant highland city it Guatamala. Its a little over 2km high so is a pleasantly cool change from the sweaty coastline. Mayan culture seems to be very important up here in the hills.

Zipolite Sunset

This is one of four beaches with villages behind them that cover a 10km area of coast. This beach had apparently deadly surf, not especially surfable but big, apparently. Whilst we where there it got smaller and smaller each day. We had a small hut right on the beach with a sea view, well we could throw stones into the surf if we had any. The noise of the surf made for some interesting dreams though.
I spent a lot of time in my hammock here.

Puerto Escondido Beach

I have been very lazy and enjoying beach and hammock life recently and therefore I haven’t taken that many photographs.
This is one of the beaches to the western end of Puerto Escondido, it was a very crowded beach with most of the space taken by restaurants and bars but it was a nice place to chill and make a drink last for ages.
