Last time I was in Guatemala, I was backpacking on the last few dollars of my student loans. The budget was tight and my agenda ambitious, and I stayed in some dreadful lodgings. This time, you'd think I was in an entirely different country. Jennifer and Mark live in a spacious condo in a swank modern high-rise with a giant living room, sitting room, three bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms, a kitchen, pantry, servants quarters (!!), floor-to-ceiling windows and a wrap-around balcony. It feels like a palace compared to my badly lit, 680 square foot, one-bedroom apartment. Kudos to Mark for picking it out, and to Jennifer for putting it together.

The views around the apartment are amazing. I'm told they're even better when the air isn't hazy and you can see the row of volcanoes marching along to the west.
