Greetings from Guatemala!!

It has been quite an adventure!!  Here is a little sneak peek from our trip. So far, it has been wonderful. It is so beautiful here. We are staying in a suburb of Antigua. Most of the streets here are made out of cobblestone and most houses and businesses have a Spanish baroque architecture style. Antigua has SO many colors around and so many different types of people. There are even many ruins from the sixteenth century that were destroyed by a major earthquake in the 1700's. Many ruins remain preserved and are now tourist attractions. If you want to learn more about Antigua go HERE
The food is also great and delicious, but it sure has done a number on us ;)


Here we are in the Palace of "Ayuntamiento" in front of the Central Park (Parke central)

We went with my mom (Virginia)
There is a coffee plantation,and a hotel and lodge with a restaurant that has GREAT food and an even BETTER view. 



plants and flowers are around everywhere. They are always in bloom and they are so beautiful.
