so, last night i had the privelege of feeling what it truly is like on a central american bus. first of all, of course, we left 30minutes late. second, there were cokroaches everwhere on the bus!! then our bus broke down.. her÷Ythe funny part, instead of having a new bus come pick us up, they had the next bus in line, which already has passengers in, pick us up. the bus driver was yelling, ladies and children first!! .. i felt like i was on the titanic.. lol.. and all the guys were trying to jam their way in, i was really confused. i got lucky and got a seat.. and people had to stand in the bus for about 6 hours!! my poor friend jason.. although, i hate to admit it, but i couldn?t stop laughing for a good 5 to 10 minutes, it was just sooo funny.. and of course we stopped about every half hour to pick up passengers on the side of the road.. i?ve never experienced anything like it.. i kind of enjoyed it though.. all excpet the honey breaking in my bag, that kind of sucked..

then when we got there, we totally got ripped off by the taxi driver, 30 quetzals.. that?s ok though cuz the chicken bus we took from guatemala city to antigua was only 7 quetzals.. less than a dollar.. it was really a school bus from virginia back in its prime.. but they had it painted all these crazy colors.. and i felt like was on a roller coaster ride the whole time.. i flew out of my seat at one point, and there was so many people jammed in there that we were all squishing each other on the turns.. and let me tell you, there were a lot of turns!! lol but it was good times, i would pay again jsut for that ride.. well, i?m going to go climb an active volcanic today. wish me luck

God bless,
love,
michelle
