Guatemala steep. Lots of walking when trekking with only one loaded horse.

 

Lots of hills…lots of time to enjoy the views.

 

Arriving at our destination. Roxy all good.

I last saw my host Davil Alburez when I attended the horse parade he hosted last November, a month after I met him at the Zaragoza horse parade. I’m visiting for the weekend: wedding, then a mini horse parade before I continue north on Monday. Awesome man, awesome family…Big THANKS…
