I love the picture at the top of my blog. It is of Flores, a small town in Guatemala. If you could pan the picture a little more to the right, you could see the place we stayed. Flores is a small island town accessable by a brige, about 30 minutes away from the Mayan ruins of Tikal. Tical is an amazing place. There are over 2000 ruins that have been unearthed with many more to resore.
If I was a writer, I would love a story set in this village. I always imagined the person in this photo was doing that very thing as he worked on his laptop.
I know nothing about the history of this place. Why is there an opening in the staircase? Inside there were just a couple of rooms...perhaps for guards.
I loved visiting Tikal. Unfortunately we spent only one day there. Perhaps with this next trip there will be time for a longer visit.
