    Waking up in the jungle

    October 2 in Guatemala ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Yesterday we arrived at the coffee farm Finca Santa Elena in the departamento of Retalhuleu (Reu). We are staying in this farm for two nights. As a lodge there are probably much better ones, as here everything is rather old and worn out; only one of the bathrooms has warm water.

Beatrice gives us several recipes for homemade flu medication (Mariano has now gotten sick too).
