Guatemala Acrostic

Ian at Iximche, Tecpan
Did you ever write acrostic poems in school? It's when you write the letters of a word in a vertical line and use those letters to start each line of a poem. I'm not so talented in the poetry department, so while I get my thoughts and pictures from our trip in order, here is an acrostic list to whet your appetite.

Awaking to roosters crowing, dogs barking, and birthday fireworks explosions
Native Mayan dress on women and young girls
Trying new foods like pitaya and liche
Ice Cream (helado) from Marco Polo
Greetings from strangers
Uphill we walked, and walked, and walked
Arts and crafts
