Nathaniel and I want to let our families know that we are safe and having a great time. Today it absolutly poured and within 20 minutes we were bone dry. The mosquitoes are crazy here but the locals tell us that malaria isn´t a risk here. When we go north to Peten to visit the ruins of tikal we will havw to be much more careful about not getting bitten alive. We will be leaving Montaricco tommorow morning to see Antigua and central Gautemala. We will be in touch with you again once we get there. Our spanish lessons are coming along really well and we are able to have conversations with our host family. We are really gald that we took spanish because it allows us to speak with the guatamalans and other travellers from around the world that don´t speak English. Last night I got to release a baby turtle into the ocean. It was a really cool experience. Anyways we love you all very much.
Love Joce and Nate.
HHHEEELLLLOOOO...I mean Hola. Comesta.. Anyway...Here we are in Monterrico, Guatamala. We arrived safly and really quite painlessly. It is sooooo warm and humid, I´m presently sweating like a pig dripping all over the key board, while Jocelyn looks quite comfortable. Our Host family is really cool and stuffing us full of different but very good food. We went for a swim yesterday and got tossed like little floaties. The waves are large and in charge. Hhaaahaa...on our way we caught a ride in a mini-van made for 8...but funny thing...we counted 25...not including a couple hanging off the outside. There are pigs and chickens and lizards running everywhere... Jocelyn loves the pigs...We´ll post pictures soon. Laters.
