Kristen, Myrtle & Art: All the places we stayed were wonderful, not only because of the comfortable rooms or quaint little huts, but because of all the natural beauty and friendly people. As we flew back home, we reflected on how much we had seen and learned. We all felt that we carried a part of Guatemala in our hearts, for we had fallen in love with the land and its people.
I organized this trip for the AAUW (American Association of University Women) San Juan Branch. Thanks to the economy's personal case of "swine flu" only 7 of us took the trip. Guatemala is a beautiful country!
We explored the enchanting blend of Mayan and Christian traditions surrounding Easter in Antigua and Lake Atitlan, and then visited the intriguing Mayan ruins at Tikal. Text and photos originally published on our web site www.craigandstephsvacations.com
