View 1985 on 1985 trip's travel map.

Thursday 10th october 1985

Have some spare Quetzals to spend and visit the market behind the cathedral. The cathedral has numerous shrines. The roman catholics seem to worship their numerous saints just like the Mayans have the plethora of deities for different spiritual roles. Get patchwork bolsas (bags) down from 15 to 10Q.

Spend the afternoon at the Post Office. Posting parcels is very cheap, small packets are expensive, no printed matter or letters.

Watch Rambo 2 in the evening. Rambo has a mission, to kill every Vietcong and Russian on the planet. He accomplishes this with the minimum of dialogue and a miraculous never ending supply of ammunition. Ghastly stuff.

When walking along the streets of Guatemala City choose which side of the street with care, not just sun or shade, but which way are the buses running, the all emit a lingering choking blue smog.

Have a blow out final supper in an Italian restaurant.
