Hola! Aqui en Xela! We are happily cruising around in the Independence Day celebrations. Last night we walked around in the city square and watched fireworks! The city of Xela is very busy and people are happy to greet us as we walk by. We have had many good meals, mostly Asian food and we are eating at an Asian cafe. Lucky for us this morning we had a traditional Guatemalan breakfast, desayuno típico. We ate beans, eggs, plantains, and avocado! Our hostel is a beautiful 100-year-old home with lots of traditional looking glass doors and plants all around. We are eager to go learn some Spanish in the mountains! Ciao!
