Xela (Quetzaltenango), Guatemala

Xela was a vibrant, crowded city and there was always something to do. The crowded streets constantly bustled with vendors selling their wares, children walking to and from school, numerous old, noisy cars and hundreds of dogs.  The view of the city pictured below was incredible. The lights of the houses of Xela, which is nestled between volcanoes, was breathtaking…except when it poured with rain, which was almost every night.

I had a lovely view from the window of my bedroom looking over the rooftops down into the valley.Image

There was a large dog living on the roof next to me and occasionally I would throw him a treat. I miss that view and my incredibly-hospitable host family!
