Day 74 – Antigua, GU

Day 74 – Antigua, GU     11/3/10     Mileage: 0

 School day numero dos and I was surprised to see Christina had returned instead of running for the hills. We sat down and soon after the massacre continued. I could see her wince with each clumsy and painful pronunciation, but she hung in there. After two hours we had a 30 minute cease fire so she could catch her breath and I could reload for my next linguistic barrage. After another 90 minutes of verb tense and vocabulary bungling, the school bell rang and a truce was called until tomorrow. After school I had a quick bite for lunch before returning to the hotel to use the wifi to download some language software and update the blog. Once that was done I wandered out for dinner and found a little taco stand where I had 4 authentic tacos with all the fixins for $3. Belly filled to the rim, I (not surprisingly) had a hankering for a beer(s) to wash down the tacos. I found a place that had Moza, which is a Guatemalan bock beer that is quite good. After 4 of those and some good conversation with the bartender (Jerome, an ex-pat from the US) and an Irish gal (Amy) sitting next to me, I packed it in. Sorry for the lack of pictures, I forgot to put the memory card in my camera this morning! I will make up for it tomorrow when I try to do some day in the life pics…
