Wednesday 7th

Sorry for the long silence. Things have been a little bit hectic.

Wednesday night we all went into Guatemala city to watch Municipal play Qetzal (sp). The home team Municipal) completely stomped on the opposition and this weekend they got through the finals.

Was nice to see a football match with almost no police presence.

Was also interesting to take a trip into one of the worlds most dangerous cities between 15-30 murders a day!

Apparently there are two main gangs. One based in El Salvador that has 50,000 members and another based in Honduras that has 30,000 member! They are currently having a small war. Didn´t feel too dangerous though...

Wow, sounds like a really safe, secure area. NOT. Glad you are having fun, but not glad to hear about the 15-30 murders a day. That is just nuts.
