Memory Cloth — Tikal

I was running out of money in Guatemala City.  I didn’t have enough for the 12 hour bus ride to Tikal – which was the main reason I went there. 

A man asked if I spoke English, when I said yes, he offered me a job at Tikal.  I became a tourist guide for 6 weeks at the “oldest and Largest Mayan ruin.”
