Where I stayed
For the weekend Natalia had planned for us to go to her family's beach house. We headed out with one car and 3 of her friends for about an hours drive. Arriving at the place, I was amazed at how nice the place was. It looked like a mini resort with pool and a outside bar. Later more of natalias friends joined us and we ended up being a good group of about 14 people. They all spoke English but most of the time Spanish was spoken but I didn't mind as this would help me learn Spanish and after enough beers i could understand and speak Spanish perfectly... Sorta...
A couple of days later I managed to get to Antigua which is a place an hour outside Guatemala city and it's the place where most travelers go to learn spanish or volunteer. When I got to the hostel I booked, i found that there was no one else there. I was the only one. Somehow I still managed to meet some people, one of which was a local who showed us the places to go out. The next day I found out which hostels were busier and found a Spanish school for the next week.
On the weekend I went back to Guatemala city because natalia had gotten me a ticket to a high school graduation party. Unfortunately I had forgotten to pack my tuxedo when I left NZ so I had to rent one and managed to find one for $35. The party was great. Every graduate gets to invite 12 people and there were about 300 graduates. So it was a party with 3000 people.
