Early morning, I took the bus to Xela, my final destination for the three weeks of Spanish immersion. I went with Linea Dorada; the ride was comfortable, the highway clean and the weather nice. Traces of Agatha were still visible on the road, but the ride took only 3.5 hours. My guatemalan mom picked me up from the bus station and brought me home. Xela is the second largest city in Guatemala; it is quiet and away from the tourist traps; it is safer that Guatemala city, but it is still not a good idea no walk alone after dark. Here are some pics:
