...where we took a bus back to Guatemala City and flew to Veracruz.

I wanted to check out mileage from Guatemala City to Veracruz. So I went to the plane, parked in the middle of La Aurora, fired up the laptop...and was greeted with a "Wireless Network Found" message! I actually found two, one was called "operations" (except in Spanish) and the other was some default Linksys name. Both were wide open. I connected to the Linksys, and fired off a quick email.

Here's the email; if you got it, you can now verify that I either take way too much effort to generate a hoax, or I did, in fact, send email from the middle of Guatemala City's airport.

Look! Another screwed up photo! The white plane landed after we taxi'd to the international terminal (and that caused no end of confusion, since we departed from the flying club down the runway) and dropped off a full load of passengers. The passengers were lined up and marched....somewhere. Best guess is that this was a US immigration plane, getting rid of some illegals. The plane, N310FL, is registered to Wells Fargo, but was flown by a bunch of guys in military-ish jump suits.

The port in Veracruz. The boat with the bucket was trying to pick up water, or cleaning the bucket. I tried to get a nice splash.

This boat was loading trucks. It spent all day loading or unloading stuff out of the hold, and moving deck plates back and forth. The trucks were hoisted onto the deck, positioned, and shrink wrapped. It left in the time we spent at the square.
