Back to Guatemala

Staying at the Hotel San Carlos on Avenida de la Reforma in Guatemala City, thanks to reservation made by my friend Lars. Flew from Calgary to Mexico City (5 hours) & then to Guatemala (2 hours). Flew to Calgary yesterday on Air North. Six hour layover in Mexico City airport. Yuck & tiring. But the flight from Whitehorse to Calgary cost more than Calgary to Guatemala City.

Mexicana Airlines must have the worst food in the world: it is positively inedible. I usually just try it just in case, hold down the nausea & then fill up with free beer and peanuts. Not that airline food is great, but the Canadian airlines food is sort of OK. I tasted the most disgusting pasta, tacos and french toast on three Mexicana flights so far. Mexicana has one redeeming quality: they still have free booze. But we were pleasantly surprised on the flight to Guatemala City: the chicken & rice they served was actually OK and I ate it.

Tomorrow, we retrieve the truck & camper, which is under a smoking volcano in an organic coffee farm in Antigua.

    You mean there is no pasta on the airlines? The world is indeed ending.

      There was what purported to be pasta on Mexicana, but it was absolutely inedible and too greasy to be used as wallpaper paste.

    Hello Luigi,

    I loved the write-up in the Yukon News about the Pick-up truck diaries. Travelling in S.A. sounds to me like a great experience for a Yukoner.

    Keep on trucking!
