Day 40 (0km): The search for a road map

We had a good sleep; the weather is cooler inland. I spent some time online trying to find out if I can buy maps anywhere (since we are in a large city). My search led us to a mall nearby. We asked (i.e. Alberto asked) several people where we could buy maps for Central America (cause all they had were Mexico maps) and that led us to another cab ride further into town. Again we were directed all over the place to several stores with no luck in finding a map of Guatemala. We did end up buying groceries though, so I guess all was not lost.

Santiago brought us some very yummy snacks before we went to the mall. They were authentic tamales. Very tasty and I liked the banana-leaf wrap action.

Fraterhnos Club members get together every Friday, so this evening so we got to meet many members of the club. It was a nice evening spent chatting, drinking and eating unique hot dogs from the street vendor downstairs. Such a good night that Alberto didn't get to bed until 4am.

  1. I'm curious, is Spanish spoken the whole time?

    1. No, a few guys made the effort to speak in english with Naomi :) but Spanish was spoken 80% of the time
