Up On The Roof

Time sure passes quickly when you’re having fun – or when you aren’t. Sometimes I don’t remember which is supposed to be what. What I do know is I haven’t made an entry on this blog this year so – here is the first one.

I’m still in San Pedro, Guatemala. Still struggling to learn some Spanish, still struggling with stomach problems. The locals keep telling me I need to drink a cervasa (beer) with every meal. I’m not sure if that is meant to help me with learning Spanish or with the stomach problems. Never let it be said I wouldn’t try anything at least once so today I added una cervasa to the lunch menu. I didn’t learn any more Spanish but so far my lunch hasn’t started that old familiar rolling around feeling so, we will see…

Since I felt a little better I broke out the camera and went up on the roof of my hotel and took a few shots after lunch. Here are the results.

      Well, I’d rather be sick here than be well in Mountain View. A sympathetic waitress from a nearby restaurant just brought me la cena (dinner) of sliced papaya, banana, watermelon, and a big bowl of yogurt. She said that would be good for my stomach. I ate it all. The kindness was good for my soul.

    Interesting pics Ed, Thanks!! in the shot with the clothes being hung out there is a “Spreading” pine tree….Its very similar in stature to the Norfolk Island Pine that grows so well along this coast… I would Love to know if your Tree is a native to that locality or if in fact someone has “Introduced” it…..ROB

      This is the only one I have seen like this at this elevation. However, when I was coming in by shuttle from Antigua we went through an area at a higher elevation that had some similar trees. So, my guess is that it is native to Guatemala but not to this particular area.
