Location: Guatemala city, Guatemala

Map Today, I woke up, and waited for maria to wake up, when she did, we went to a breakfast buffet, and found out only my mom can feed her. She loves bacon. We then went back, watched tv, had pizza, Ect. until my dad and me went for a walk around. We got a taxi to the city square. We saw a free show of guys playing marimba in a latin band. And we also saw the Guatemalan version of the white house, The presidential palace. It was bigger, better, and more expensive than the white house. We went in and got a tour. We found out that during the Guatemalan civil war, a person in a car came up and put a bomb on the car and ran, and it blew up half the palace, but now it is reconstructed. We then found out that the president dosen't live there, he has his own house. Then we toured more palacy things there. And then we left and went to a huge national cathedral. It wastn't mary centered like the other churches. There was a wedding going on so we didn't stay. Then we took a taxi back to the hotel. Ate dinner, and went to bed.
