Adios Land of Forests

Goodbye Guatemala ("Land of Forests"), I will miss being the tallest tree here--it is a rarity that I tower over most.

I head back to a land where a clown is running for president, from a country where a clown actually is president.  Yes, Guatemala really elected in the last election a clown as president, Jimmy Morales, who ran on on a slogan "Ni corrupto, ni ladrón" (Neither corrupt nor a thief”).

Morales beat another former First Lady, Sandra Torres--a woman who divorced her former-president husband because relatives are barred from serving in the office of President.  She said she would be "married to the people."
