I'll miss her too!
How about quoting some prices of food and accommodations?
Yes, we will all miss her! I'll have to find a new star for this show
I'll try to include prices for accommodations, but I rarely talk about food or keep good specific track of the costs (although I have a general idea of what it costs day to day). I can include that if you'd like, similar to John in his excellent "South America and back on a 250 Super Sherpa Minimalist Adventure" RR. (free plug for a great RR!)

Very true. Guatemala might be my favorite CA country (not that I rank them
) Three years ago I stayed in Flores for $6 a night (I was on a <$20 a day budget
). In Xela now, my accommodations are $4.60 a night for my own room (shared bathroom). I see postings with monthly rent for about 800 quetzales ($100 bucks). I think I'm spending too much on food, but I'm sick of tacos so I've been eating foreign (Thai, Indian, Mediterranean, Italian...
) But it's definitely not bad!
