Mini vacation in Guatemala for Marge and Tom
Just back from two nights away, our first time to get away together since last November. We have been very busy working here with the business and also doing some community projects. Life is good here in the jungle; as one of our good friends here in Belize says, “you came to Belize to live a simpler, quieter life, right? Well, the only problem is, you brought yourselves along!” So true, George, but we love living here and love the life we have created for ourselves here. We went over to Guatemala for some rest and on the way we decided to hook up with Hugo Mayen, a tour guide that we use for some of our Tikal trips. He also does tours of Yax Ha, another Maya site on the way, where the first TV Survivor series was filmed (his father, Hugo Sr. worked with the TV crews). Hugo picked us up at the border and drove us in a very nice Toyota Hiace van to Yax Ha.
