>Semuc Champey wowzers!

>When people say that Semuc Champey might be one of the most beautiful things you can see and experience in Guatemala, they’re not lying or even exaggerating.

(having hard time rotating, pick and turn computer!)

Deep.  And I mean DEEP in the jungle.  In the heart of Guatemala.  Where people use dirt mountain trails as sidewalks.  Where they speak the Mayan language of Kekchi and little Spanish. 

(Chocolate girls, I bought over 10 bars, it’s a problem)

Where the little girls sell home made chocolate.  They’re mom’s dry the cocoa beans in the front yard.

Where you walk 1km in any direction to find the closest tienda and all they sell is rice, beans and cookies.  Nothing like fruits or veggies.

This my friends, is the heart of Guatemala.  Semuc Champey.  A place.  A park.  A series of waterfalls/natural swimming pools.  A pumping river that goes underground for 300 meters.  Leaving above, beauty that you’ve never imagined.  

Seriously.  How to imagine seeing monkeys.  Waterfalls.  Pools.  Jungle   And fresh chocolate.


I’ll continue on the chocolate later.  As I have an addiction.  It’s a problem, we bought 4 bars in one day.  They knew us by name.  As we’d sneak off into the jungle, they’d see us, yelling ‘Anna y Heily, hay choco latte!’  Sad but very true.

 
Another success!
