In Guatemala

Most of the group went back across the river, except for a few who stayed behind to wait for our missing photographers. We (Pablo, Luis, nakai, Salma, Alina) were waiting for a while so pablo suggested we go for a walk. We were stopped by a group of people (that I thought looked sketchy at first, because they kept on watching us) that stopped us from going further. They told pablo that they didn’t want anything to happen to us, that they were watching us and didn’t want anything bad to happen to us/tourists. They figured if we continued someone would get hurt and they didn’t approve of that happening.
