SO SAD TO HEAR about the volcanic eruption in Guatemala today.
I lived for two months in the beautiful country back in December 2013.
Our tour group spent a night camping on a neighbouring volcano (Acatenango) to the one which eventually erupted. It was a helluva hike (13,000 ft).
I spent a lot of time with a host family while learning Spanish and got to know the people and culture.
The warmth and generosity of the people were a big part of what made that year of backpacking so enjoyable.
Sixty-two people are now confirmed dead with the number expected to rise.
Very sad to see some of the pictures today.
Sure helps put things into perspective.
My thoughts are with the families and those affected.
