Yesterday, I decided to catch the train a little bit later, to delay by about 30 minutes. Catching a later train means fewer people on the train, a bit more elbow room. I decided to play a bit on the way with the Hipstamatic application on my phone. I started taking pictures right way, almost as soon as I sat down. Then, I noticed that by the reflection in the window, I could see the guy in front of me…

Back in the day, I used to work at a One Hour Photo. Good fun! It always seemed to be exciting our customers to be able to get their photos back in an hour. Now, with instant gratification at an all time high, especially with digital photography, waiting an hour seems like an eternity! No more customers standing at the window, waiting excitedly for their prints to come out of the chute and land into one of the viewing trays…

I almost had an Office Space moment the other day. If any of you have seen the movie, Office Space, you’ll probably recollect the scene when the employees get to take out their revenge on the printer that had been giving them so much trouble in the office. Beware: The link is the uncut version. NSFW (Not Suitable For Work) ­čśÇ I wanted to go all Office Space on my printer the other day. I wanted to print a few…

Well, the title is a tiny bit misleading, though not entirely. The Guatemalans were very accepting of U.S. Dollars; however, they had to be in good condition. If they were torn in the slightest, had little bit missing off of the corner, or anything imperfect about them, they wouldn’t accept them. When I tried to pay for my classes at the school and my home stay, I plopped down 3 Benjamins ($100 bills – Ben Franklin on the front). The…

This wasn’t the last picture that I took in Guatemala, but pretty close. This, I took after we returned from the lake. It was late at night, 10:13 PM, according to the timestamp. We had endured a grueling ride back from Lake Atitl├ín, lots and lots of traffic, a nice bumpy side road to keep us awake, and thankfully, a restroom break at a gas station! When we got back, we were pretty tired, but hungry, so we set off…

Lake Atitl├ín is a lake in a caldera. In this case, basically a crater between 3 volcanoes. It’s impressive and has a maximum depth of about 1,100 feet, or 340 meters! It’s, of course, a huge tourist attraction and especially during the weekend during Semana Santa. That was a BIG mistake to book it on that day; however, as Vanessa and I attended Spanish lessons during the week, we really only had 1 day to choose, Saturday. So, we ran…
