Tikal

Antigua: old Spanish architecture, cathedrals, cobbled streets, volcanos (hiking), study Spanish, party at rooftop bars, cafes

Holy crap! that's alot of places. I'm looking at some of the visas and they range from 30d to 6 months. I think it'd be cool to stay at least as long as the visa :) if we can extend the visa, then great! I'd like to be able to recall what the country was like, even 10 years later... i say this because @ the end of my high school year, I went on a 1 mo europe trip (with other h.s. graduates) .. but we only spent like 3 days in each city.. and went to 8 different countries... so it was quite a whirlwind experience and i only remember bits and pieces...

I think this is good to start with... i was hoping that in the calendar, I could make plans to return to the states for burningman and maybe a week here and there for holidays to spend with family/friends.

SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!
