We made it to Guatemala

Megan and I made it to Guatemala Wednesday. We were picked up at the airport and taken to Quetzaltenango, the city where we will be staying until December. The drive was beautiful, but pretty wild, as many parts of the highway were shut down from mudslides.

A lot of the trip through the highlands looked something like this

Last night we stayed in a really nice hotel right on the central park. It was a little pricey, so we moved to a hostel temporarily until we can find a more permanent apartment.

This map shows a few of the places we visited yesterday and today.
