Rio Dulce, Fronteras, Guatemala --- Tuesday, July 13, 2010

This dog was lying around at the Sundog bar here in the city of Fronteras, commonly called Rio Dulce in Guatemala.



Two majestic looking Catamaran Sailboats, this is a hurricane safe area whereby a boat can dock for about 100-200 dollars per month.





I was walking by a big pig the other day, a sow with a piglet, and I had a moment of empathy for tourist. They want to see beauty, I see real life, the guts and glory as beautiful, and even when I am complaining, I am vibrantly, voraciously, vividly alive.

I was enjoying watching the pig wallow in the water, I thought to myself, a pig does not have sweat gland, therefore it needs mud to cool its body, it was a happy thought, and it reminded me of my youth working on the farm.

The Travel Tip here, it is best to ask yourself the question, do you want to see a pig, or do you want to see paradise? Moreover, if you see a pig, is this paradise for you, it is real life, it can be paradise for you, or are you continually searching for a sweeter spot?
