After a short night, we headed to the Guatemala airport for a charter flight. Nate made arrangements for a small plane to take us to Nebaj.

The markets. It was crazy. I walked right thru the center. Food and items were everywhere. The smell was a mixture of trash and exhaust. Kids were staring at the bald gringo. For a moment I thought I was Anthony Bourdain.

We will hang in Nebaj until Monday, when we are scheduled to go to Saqiul where we will visit a Christian school. The reason for this part of the trip is to attend the dedication of the first New Testament in the Ixil language.
