We are finally in Guatemala after an overnight in Houston. I won’t dwell on the details because we have lots of interesting stories and pictures to share. Got to Houston just after midnight and picked up our accommodation and taxi vouchers from United Airlines. It was difficult to get to our hotel because none of the taxis wanted to accept the vouchers. Shelley put the pressure on and a young cabby took us to the hotel ( Super 8..sort of a hotel ) arriving about 1 a.m. Tipped the cabby and went in to find they only had two rooms. Nine Rotarians shared two rooms then back to the airport at 6:30 a.m. just in time to watch Canada win the hockey Gold in the restaurant. Lots of Canada fans in Houston as you could hear the cheers ripple through the airport.
PS Colleen never did find her boarding pass but was able to go across the airport and get another and be back to the loading gate with well over six minutes to spare. Luckily when she lost it again the next day a frantic search in security turned it up.
Landed in Guatemala at noon and were picked up by David with driver and van. Twelve people nine sets of luggage and three extra large suitcases with supplies ( one of which broke open at the Victoria airport) and we were off for the three hour drive to San Antonio at Lake Atitlan.
