Back to the Boat

We finished in the USA in Yosemite, no time for any more National Parks. 2 nights before we left the dawn temperature was -1C. We had to have camp fires in White Wolf campground; even though Yosemite has no wolves, Caroline is convinced she saw a white wolf. The following day there were magnificent healthy looking coyotes in the campground, these animals never look away. We were a long way away so Caroline got out to take a photo, these bold animals stared and one stepped toward her. They were nowhere the size of the 'wolf'.

Results of many fires

Guatemala is humid, dirty, but very beautiful. The bar we visited ruled soft drugs inside (cannabis) hard drugs (cocaine) outside. (No, we didn't!) Things are a little different here. The barman at this bar has been here for 9 years, speaks no Spanish (apparently unnecessary as you can get by without) and gets to smoke pot whilst working – described his job as the best in the world.

Chickens come with feet, neck and liver inside, perfect for making chicken soup which is very good here. Although bizarrely Caroline had to step over a chicken claw on the bridge walkway for a week (just a claw).
