Flores, Guatemala

The 8-hour journey to Flores, Guatemala from Palenque, Mexico consisted of a bus to La Palma, Mexico, a boat ride down the Rio San Pedro, then another bus from the Guatemala side of the river to Flores. The boarder crossing into Guatemalla was a shack by the river manned by two teenaged soldiers.

I made the journey with 3 Israelies, a Swede, and 2 Britons, and we will spend the day at the ruins in Tikal. The bus for the ruins leaves at 5 am. On return tomorrow to Flores, I will get on the 10 pm bus to Guatemala City, arriving the following morning. From there I'll go further to Quetzaltenango where I plan on staying for a few weeks to study Spanish.
