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.

i don't have much idea about what you talked about in the post but, have a nice vacation ana! see you soon (here). :-)ReplyDelete
Have a happy time, Ana. I'll miss reading your stuff. I did an anti-Chavez piece in June (Radicals of the left) which was prompted by a conversation I had with a second cousin who - I thought surprisingly - was a fan of his. (She is about your age and a lovely person by the way.)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Ella, and Yun Yi and Mark. :-) Mark, I'll come and have a look.ReplyDelete
I wish you the best on your adventure. Bask in the Mayan ruins for me. How fascinating is the Mayan culture (referring to the Mayans at the height of their existence, pre-Spanish conquest)?ReplyDelete
May your journey be safe and void of mishaps. I thank you once again for brilliant blog and the words you share with us readers.
CC, it takes my breath away to see those incredible pyramids arising from the forest canopy, like nothing I've ever seen before, belonging to a distant past but so futuristic that they even appeared in Star Wars!ReplyDelete
Thank you for your good wishes. :-)

So the only way to stop you writing is to send you to Guatemala...hmm...ReplyDelete
I've been stewing over our local election..it's on 21/8/10 and by the time you read this it may be over.
I've upgraded the template on R & A to allow compatibility with some of the new features that didn't work with the old one. I think the new colour scheme is a bit more reader-friendly too.
James and RCP, thank you both very much indeed. :-)ReplyDelete
Retarius, you spoke too soon - I'm back! I'll check out things later today. I've so much catching up to do. You would not believe my inbox...or perhaps you would. :-)ReplyDelete
Something's been gobbling up server space on the Internet...I'd believe it!ReplyDelete
