Thanks Julio, it was your advice that got me to the wonderful hot waterfall, and now the delightful company in Guatemala city in which I find safe haven and respite after a really tough week. Amazing people, and I have found a good friend in Petra. I am eternally grateful.
And yes I need to remember to prepare for dirt and mud, even though mostly it catches me by surprise that it is there in the first place ( great planning skills as always!) and not just keep pushing on thinking it will get better soon!
