Guatemala by Chicken Bus

Ever thought about visiting Guatemala? Or just want to take a virtual trip to someplace warm during the cold weather? Join us as we journey to Guatemala with Anna Winkel!

In the fall of 2008 and spring of 2009, Anna, a local librarian, spent 8 months traveling, studying, and volunteering in Guatemala. In this travel slide show, you'll journey by chicken bus from the old capital city of Antigua to the shores of Lago Atitlan to the mountains of Alta Verapaz. Bring your questions about where to go, what to see, and how to get around--by chicken bus or otherwise! Food samples will be included! This event is happening Thursday, January 20, at 2:00 p.m. at the Schlessman Family Branch Library. Join us!
