Chris is a good friend, started reading my newsletters, then onto blogs in about 2000, or eight years ago, we have been traveling together for years by email, I am proud to call him a friend. Note: He purchased a new hat, I think the chicas will like the new one.
The Casa Shalom has Free Wireless Internet Access or WIFI, they call this Inalambrico here in Guatemala. The best part of the hotel is the upper floor, the common area, and a free to use guest kitchen, hard to find normally around Antigua. This is next to the Posada Don Quijote, that also has Wireless Internet for free, both are good hotels to use for jump to Panajachel, Lago Atilan. Note, always test wireless before you pay...
Wade and Mira made this page as a trade for a week of living free, he now has trade a small amount of work for a week of living twices. I guess he save about 100 U.S. Dollars by doing this trade. It ia great benefit and about any traveler can do this trade with a Hotel. Antigua Hotel
I truly think doing these trades could reduce the cost of traveling by 2/3.
