Crossing borders is always an intriguing experience - it took a little while to adjust to popping into the chaos of Mexico from San Diego. Belize was another step down the poverty ladder from Mexico and Guatemala feels poorer again. Flores is on an island in the middle of a lake and the place was in the middle of its annual feria with marching bands, fireworks, funfairs and beer tents. People here might not have a lot, but they do know how to live.
