Here we are once again: this is my last post for the season; Ana is taking a vacation! Early on Monday morning I leave for Guatemala, from there fanning out across Central America, spending time in Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama and, if our itinerary allows, in Mexico. I've been to Guatemala before, visiting, all too briefly, the wonderful Mayan remains at Tikal. I want to spend more time there. I also want to visit the Mayan sites in Honduras, a country I've never been to.
But there is another reason for visiting here- I want to show some simple solidarity with the people of the country, the decent people, and the government of Pepe Lobo. After they threw out Manuel Zelaya, that Chavez clone and tyrant in the making, I blogged ferociously on behalf of this beleaguered nation, isolated across the world, under attack from the likes of Fidel Castro and Barack Obama. The pressure is off now and Zelaya, thankfully, is the wave of the past. Viva Honduras!
Anyway, I'll be away for close on four weeks. I hope you all have a decent summer and I'll see you, the goddess willing, in mid-August.
