Guatemala

Guatemala, the land of the forest. The land of colourful Maya culture with 23 different indigenous languages, besides Spanish. Trips to Antigua and Lago de Atitlan from bustling Guatemala City in between the Christmas Holidays 2014. Then going on a round trip to Semuc Champey, Livingston, Flores/Tikal (Petén), the Usumascinta river on the border to Mexico, and finally into the mountains of Nebaj for a Spanish course. The last three days were spent in wonderful Lima, Peru.
