I finally was able to upload pictures of Lake Atitlan so if you have time please check out the 15 pictures that took 2 hrs to upload due to slow internet service. I have been in Chichi for the Mayan market which is on Thursdays and Sundays. All of the Mayan villagers come to town to sell their crafts, vegetables, poultry and food prepared in stalls side by side. I will add more info and pictures when I get to San Cristobal, Mexico tomorrow. I have decided to take a shuttle which will take me to the border and anothe shuttle picks me up on the other side. It is about twice as expensive as taking the chicken buses but this border crossing and the trip to it can be hazardous. Anyway all the backpackers at the last 2 hostels were all taking the shuttle so I might as well. Save me some time also not having to make lots of connections.

- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
