  • The surfer's promised land.

What if I told you there was a region that experienced a constant onslaught of swell and all day offshores for 300 days of the year? Sounds to good to be true? Feeling skeptical? Well my friend welcome to Southern Nicaragua. Welcome to the promised land and welcome to perhaps the holy grail of surfing regions. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay.

From March to October of each year Nica is in the direct firing line of the large and consistent swells that march up the Pacific coast from Chile in South America all the way to Mexico in the north of Central America. There is by no means any shortage of swell here to say the least. These bountiful swells arrive on the shores of Nicaragua perfectly groomed by all day offshore winds generated by the Great Lakes of Nicaragua.

  • Mum and a local muso, Cahuita CR 2018. 
We were having an excellent time chatting to and singing with this dude. This pic was taken seconds before a rock fight broke out between the muso and a local inebriated man who attacked him in broad daylight. We had to leg it back to our hotel for our own safety. This photo serves as a good reminder to live in the moment, because you never know what's around the bend. Enjoy the now.

  • Day 188: Tikal, Peten, Guatemala.
Why this incredible Mayan site is not a wonder of the world is beyond me!
Some interesting facts:
- This temple, situated in the Gran Plaza, has a counterpart, together they represent life and death, sunrise and sunset, burial site for King and Queen
- Tikal is over 2800 years old, and at a time was home to c. 1 million inhabitants
- This megalopolis was believed to hold 60,000 buildings, only 3% of which have been found and of that, 10% have been excavated
- The Tikal water systems feed in to 14 reservoirs and the city boasted 105km of roadways, 57km of canals and 14km of walls
All in all quite an extraordinary place and civilisation!

Hello all! My name is Ana and I’m half Guatemalan half English. I’ve just completed my 3rd year studying architecture at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Scotland and I’m about to commence a year out working in practise. I’m very excited to be back in Guatemala and working on a socially motivated project with so much potential to make a positive impact in the urban context. The architecture of this country has shaped my personal journey as a designer and the culture has influenced my artistic identity.

Hola a todos! Mi nombre es Ana, soy mitad Guatemalteca y mitad Inglesa. Acabo de completar mi tercer año estudiando arquitectura en la Escuela Mackintosh de Arquitectura en Escocia y estoy a punto de comenzar un año de practicas. Me emociona estar de vuelta en Guatemala y trabajar en un proyecto con objetos sociales con un potencial de mucho positivismo para encontrar soluciones a problemas urbanos de la ciudad. La arquitectura de este país ha formado mi desarrollo personal como diseñadora y la cultura ha influenciado mi identidad artística.
