This day we would visit Tikal a beautiful site with beautiful structures. Although we had a beautiful hotel and sunrise a disadvantage of group traveling was there. Our tourguide wanted to sleep very long so we missed the sunrise at the piramids of Tikal, bummer but maybe if I visit Guatemala again I definately will be on a top of a piramid very early. After having a great breakfast we went with two minivans to the surroundings of Tikal. Linda and I had bad luck our gay tour guide Paul came to sit next to us so we had to sit with three people at a row in the minivan. Of course it became worse :-D. He began to talk and never stopped. While he was talking I saw a huge nose hear coming out of his nose which curled to the tip of his nose.
The temperature was very good to walk. We bought tickets and saw a macquette of Tikal. It was already very impressive on the macquette and after buying some drinks we were ready to go! First we stopped at a little lake, our Guatamalean guide explained the meaning of this lake but I was getting stabbed by a black flying creature. I'm glad Theo warned me as the fly had already tasted some of my blood. I rolled my trousers down to my feet and of course I forgot everything our Guatemalean guide told me :-( We walke further to the Tikal tree. It so large that you can't cross the tree with four man and of course it's branches are very characteristic.
