Welcome to Tom Goetz's
1997 Central American Photo Journal!
A photo documentary of my 18-day adventure through Guatemala,
Belize, and Southern Mexico
Before we begin, let's play a little game. In the picture
below, can you find the "Orange Crush" sign?
This picture was taken at Los Encuentros, Guatemala. This is basically
just a crossroads and a transfer point for busses. When my bus pulled in,
I thought someone was playing a practical joke. If I had a camera that
took a 360 degree picture, you would see about 100 Crush signs. Wouldn't
it be easier on the eye if they just put one sign as you enter town stating
that EVERYONE here sells Orange Crush?
