Scott, A friend of mine, Heather, just started The 10 Back Collection. She buys from local artisans and gives 10% of the profit back. Her boyfriend apparently has some very good deals on land down there. I am planning a trip. Let me know whether you're interested. Also, I have always, always wanted to go to Guatemala.

I like to spend all of my free time in Central America. I spend a lot of time in Belize and Guatamala, but I am planning on Honduras or Nicaragua in the spring. Probably Honduras so I can explore Copan and hang with the Garafuna people there.

Hi Lois! And, welcome to the Truckin' Zoo. No, I didn't write the Traveler's Credo. I saw it at the Hawthorne Hostel and took a picture of it. Isn't it nice? That's just what I love about staying in hostels.

Did you write that Credo, Mike? Beautiful. I feel the same way. Lois
Comment by Lois Hudson on August 3, 2008 at 4:30pm
Hi fellow travellers. Soon I'll travel to Manhattan. Love it there and miss it. Lois
