Where in the World Was Kelly Marshall?
Part 1: British Columbia to Guatemala

The view from our hostel (The Terrace Hostel) in La Antigua, a city in the central highlands of Guatemala – you can see Volcán de Agua, a 3,766 meters volcano.
The “suicide shower” in our hostel – Central America is infamous for its lack of hot water. The local solution is to install a devise to heat the water inside the shower head that is connected directly to the main electrical line.
