Guatemalan trip : Introduction

By Maangchi

My 2 week trip to Guatemala was done successfully. I could not check my email, Youtube, and my blog comments everyday. Maybe every other day when I found an internet café, I could only approve the comments, but no answer. Approving comments took about 1-2 hours. It was impossible to answer everybody’s questions.

I found a few of my devoted readers answered on behalf of me! I felt wow! It made me feel a little bit emotional. I don’t know how to thank you guys.

I usually focus on 3 factors when I travel to another country: food, scenery, and people. How about you?

I will ask you this. Which factor of the 3 do you think I would consider the most important factor?

I think most of you may say, “Maangchi, I know you like food, so I guess your number one priority must be to taste their local food!”  If you say so, it’s a wrong answer. : )

I love to meet people! I’m very interested in looking at what they wear, eat, and drink, even how they carry their heavy stuff!

You know where you can see all this in a limited time? Ooh baby, it’s a market! I love to see their markets. When you go to their market, you’ll be able to see all these things in one place.

I visited Antigua, San Pedro, Chichicastenango market, Guatemala City, Flores, Tikal, Coban,  and Semuc Champey during my 2 week travel. My total travel hours in the country were about 50 hours, which means I traveled everyday about 4 hours. I’m confessing that you are always following me wherever I went, so I took so many photos to show you later. I’m not kissing your ass, but this is true! : )

I will blog about what I saw and experienced in 3 blog posts:
1. the food I tasted

2. the markets that I saw and shopped, and scenery photos, and
3. the people that I saw and met.
Are you interested in reading these?
Ok, this is my introduction, I will write about these soon. Stay tuned!
