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?
