I arrived back in Guate, as Guatemala City is known by the locals, yesterday. My friend Annabelle Romero picked me up at the airport and whisked me back to Quetzleroo, The coolest hostel in the world that she runs with her brother, Manuel. When I was there in May, they were just getting started with their business. Since then it has taken off and they have had to add extra rooms and beds to keep up with the buzz that word-of-mouth has generated. Brother Marcos and Mom have become involved now so it is truly a family affair!
After settling in a bit, I went with Anna and Alicia, two sisters from Montreal, to the Museo Nacional de Arqueologia y Etnologia, perhaps the largest repository of Maya artifacts in the world.
