Where We Are - Early July 2007

Where We Are - July 2007
Today we're in Panajachel, Guatemala, one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. And we've been a to a lot of beautiful places on this trip! It's right on a glorious calm blue mountain lake presided over by towering volcanoes. As you can read elsewhere, we're going to be here in Guatemala for a month or two or more helping Friendship Bridge post profiles to Kiva.org. We plan to be riding our bikes all over western Guatemala to the various Friendship Bridge branches and meeting people in the villages.

In the past month we rode from the southern part of Oaxaca, Mexico along the Pacific coast for a few days, then up a huge climb into the mountains of Chiapas. Nancy liked the climate so much when we got up into the mountains that we stayed for two weeks and she studied Spanish. When we got going again, it was just a few days into Guatemala and then a glorious week or so exploring the green, mountainous western highlands of Guatemala.

New Pictures

We've posted quite a lot of new pictures on flickr, although you may have seen some of them already - we didn't sort out the Chiapas pictures into a different set. They're on the Photos Page or you can go directly to them:

If you haven't noticed it already, you can float your mouse over the slideshow and an "I" will appear. If you click it, you'll get the description of the pictures.

Thanks for following along with us!
