I'm off to Guatemala, again!
Hello friends. It's been a few months since I last posted. Mainly because my coaster riding has been nil over the fall in winter.
I am leaving today for Guatemala. I have an internship at the US embassy. This is a part of my public affairs masters degree requirement at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at Texas.
I'll be back in late April. I will be making a trip to Xetulul to ride coasters and visit the water park. Look for a TR!
Good luck Pat-O. Nice to hear from you again!

I left Guatemala in 2001, so I missed Xetulul by a year. One day I'll get there. I'm glad that you'll get an opportunity this time around.
Xocomil looks like a fantastic waterpark too. Both parks look heavily themed, and a lot of fun.
Good luck with the internship too.
Have a great trip - I've been twice on mission trips to an orphanage in Aldea Aguacate - Hogar Miguel Magone - neat country. If you get bored, maybe you can find some pictures of the NAD racing coaster in Guatemala City circa 1953-1960 - I've only ever seen one picture of it, similar to the one in Mexico City - supposedly was carted away for firewood after its demise, but must have been something in its time!!
Have fun Patton!
