We had such a nice excursion to Xela today, on account of some business Daniel needed to attend to. There is a nice mall there, with a food court that features Dominoes Pizza, Torta Loca (I know you've never heard of that one), Burger King, Subway, Pollo Campero, Chinito Veloz (the "Quick Little China man" - that name cracks me up!), and TACO BELL, where we bought our lunch.
(Oops - you can only see Johanna's hair sprig over Joseph's left ear... Oh, and Joel's nose and cheek next to Jessica's elbow... Okay, so we didn't get everybody in this one.)
After the business was taken care of, we headed for home, stopping along the way at a new nursery we spotted. They had some beautiful flowers and shrubs, and I liked the variety of herbs available. We picked up a rosemary plant, and a spearmint for about two bucks apiece - a steal! Nearby was a nice backdrop for a photo. Aproveche!
Then on to San Juan. We pass some pretty scenery on our way home, that I think you will enjoy...
Planted fields and mountainside.
I wonder where this road leads to?
A nice, shady house. I imagine it's a bit on the cool side.
HEY - how'd this pic get in there? This is the not-so-pretty entrance to San Juan, the little town we go through to get to our house. It looks a lot prettier from a distance, as you see below...
This is the view of San Juan from our house (which is on the left). I love our peaceful little corner of Guatemala! It's always good to come home.
