Traveling Again

Updated by Jimmy:
Today we had to drive to Guatemala City. There are a lot of things we need to get done in the next two days. Our main purpose for coming was to start the paperwork on obtaining our resident visas. Once we have those, we will be able to bring in whatever we want into the country duty free one time. We will use that on my truck, which will save us about $4,000. That will also mean we are residents of Guatemala and won’t need to leave the country.
We thought that after our trip to Guate (the short name for Guatemala City) we would have to drive to the border because the 45 day permission on my truck expires Thursday. Thankfully, we found out that we could renew the permission in Guatemala City while we are here, saving us a lot of time and money. It should be so much easier to just do this as well.
The third thing we hope to accomplish is to buy some things we have been looking for the last month. Every time we set out to find something important, we spend lots of time only to finally be told that we can only find that thing in Guate... Well, finally our list is long enough and we have another reason to drive the 4 hours, so we will be trying to cross some things off our list as well.
