In the Fall of 2002, taking time off after the collapse of the Internet Bubble, I accepted the invitation of Masha and Ninoska Solorzano to visit Guatemala and stay with their family for a few weeks. In one short trip, and in one country, I literally touched the history of the Americas with the Mayan ruins of Tikal, the cobbled Spanish colonial streets of Antigua, and the vibrant nightlife of Zones 4 and 10 in Guatemala City. Along the way, I picked up Spanish, saw incredible highland scenery and learned to salsa.
