holidays with ali

Ali, a friend from DF, decides to spend her Christmas/New Year holidays in Guatemala with me.

Ali brings a bike with her from Mexico which looks exactly like a bike but sadly performs none of the functions of a bike. It barely makes it from Flores to Tikal and Ali sells it in El Remate in order to avoid the return trip.

We camp a couple of nights at Tikal.

The wildlife around Tikal is hardly very wild. A huge family of pozotes roams the area busily digging for tasty snacks.

A green path winds through the forest to the more distant structures.

We visit on a Sunday and there seems to be lot more locals present than I have seen at other sites I have been to.
