O tym jak zmokliśmy na pustyni i poczuliśmy się mali przy najwyższych palmach świata

My first post in polish, my mother tong. During our travels I haven’t had many opportunities to speak polish so it was a pleasure to write something. There are a lot of photos for those who don’t understand the words. 

Jesteśmy w Kolumbii – w kraju, przed którym byliśmy wiecznie ostrzegani. Ku naszemu zdziwieniu nic nie jest takie, jakie miało być. Ludzie są tutaj tak mili, jak nigdzie indziej. Jednakże dystanse miedzy punktami naszego zaionteresowania są znacznie większe niż w malutkiej Ameryce Centralnej. Tutaj każda podróż to minimum 8 godzin w ścigającym się z innymi autobusie. Wyścig kończy się jednak co parę godzin, kiedy to autobus zatrzymuje się na środku drogi, żeby zabrać więcej pasażerów i pozwolić ulicznym sprzedawcom wejść do środka i handlować wszystkim: od lodów, po smażone kurczaki i świeże owoce. W ten sposób podróż wydłuża się z szacowanych 6 do 8 godzin. Czasem nas to denerwuje, bo chcielibyśmy dojechać na miejsce jak najszybciej, ale z drugiej strony dzięki temu nigdy nie jesteśmy głodni!

Spendings in Guatemala

We spent 16 days traveling around Guatemala, averaging about $23 a day per person. Guatemala seemed to be much cheaper than Belize and about the same price as Mexico.

We only couch-surfed once, so our accommodation was our biggest expense. Being a huge country with not a lot of cars driving around (hard to hitchhike) we ended up spending a bit on traveling in-between places.

Drama in Flores, Guatemala

Next episode: Flores, Guatemala, a city entirely covering an island in the middle of the lake and connected to the main town by a bridge. The city looks magical with its cobbled streets and little buildings, each in a different colour. Almost all of the hotels / restaurants are placed at the waterfront, giving amazing views of the lake.
