Guatemala

The Rose Man

Here in Panajachel, Guatemala there is a man who buys a dozen roses from a vendor who has the best roses ever, and gives them away – one at a time – to the women of this town.

Flight Changes, Orphaned Luggage

I was really tuckered out after a month-long stay visiting my family in California and was looking forward to an easy flight home to Guatemala. Billy (that angel of mine!) was waiting for me in Antigua and he had arranged for our private driver to meet me at the Guatemala City airport about an hour away and bring me to our hotel.
