Mexico and Guatemala

Yesterday we traveled into the night - I know...I know...we said we would NEVER travel into the night - but we have a few complications that required us to do just that. We ended up staying on a road-side hotel. Yes, about what you pictured. It was RIGHT on the street of the thoroughfare so we heard big-rigs rolling by our room throughout the night. The bed was clean, the sheets were clean. The bathroom was quite fun. It was a shower/toilet/sink all in one - thought about it too late to take a picture. Anyway - it was a roof over our head, and a shower to get clean.

Next morning we were up bright and early to try and make it into Guatemala City. So - finished up Mexico, had about a 40 minute border crossing and drove like mad to make the City. We arrived into Guatemala City and had to drive about an hour to find a hotel that would take all of us and the dog. The GREAT thing! This was the first hotel that we didn't have to completely unload/unpack our car! The garage is secured/locked and has an armed guard. It was AWESOME! This typically takes about 30 minutes or so on either end - when we get where we are going and are exhausted to unload all our stuff to the hotel room - and then in the morning to reload everything. So HUGE thanks for that. We plan on getting up our normal hour of 6am, and out the door by 6:30am. Our huge prayer is that we make La Ceiba by nightfall. How exciting to sleep in our own beds! Max and Madison have been AMAZING on the entire trip - but I know they are both ready to end this adventure.

Next blog - from HOME!
