The saga of the forgotten passport and money to follow ( good ending)
Here is an extract from an email from Chris P; a fellow cycle staying at our hostel. It made me cry with laughter.
"Yesterday, after you left, there was a lot of noise and commotion at the guest house. The place was swarming with Guatemalan cops. An American lady spent ages talking to them, while counting out hundreds of dollars in notes. Sander suspected foul play-assumed that this must have had something to do with police corruption, but later it turned out the police were returning the woman's money belt. Apparently she'd left it in the shower at the guest house. There are some honest people around here obviously.",
