Tikal-Must-See.  The thick jungle canopy ate all light. Moments ago I sat atop Temple IV bathed in twilight. I was the only person left at the top of the limestone temple. My new Sony camera was perched on top of my tripod grabbing the last moments of light. A stubbly security guard graced with a shotgun [...]

Granada’s name is inspired by its Spanish namesake and its Moorish appearance.  As an interesting historical side note, Nicaragua was once ruled by its President William [...]

If you asked me my impressions of this Central American country, I might mention right wing death squads or rival drug gangs. But negative stereotypes often surprise you on the upside. El Salvador charmed me with its captivating nature and inviting [...]
