Day One

We made it safely to our hotel in San Ignacio and we have gotten settled in. We arrived at about 4:30 (which is 5:30 in the U.S.). We didn't have any problems getting through customs with our WIDE variety of supplies, though some people in our group had to show the contents of their bags. Some of the lucky ones who were searched happened to have the vaginal fungal creams, pampers, and lice-removal kits (ha-ha), another bag that was searched had all the "drugs" (acetaminophen, multivitamins, ibuprofen, etc.) in it! Luckily, it was not a problem. When we first got into San Ignacio we stopped to a marketOur hotel is very nice with amazing views. We can see mountains in the distance that is actually Guatemala. We had a dinner tonight that consisted of fresh salsa, stuffed chicken, fried fish in creole sauce, potatoes, fried plantains (YUM), and beans and rice.

Please enjoy the pictures! There will be much more to come!

The juice drink on the left is called sorrel, a juice made of a hibiscus-like fruit. The drink on the right is a variation of rice milk.
