Dominic's foster family joined us Sunday morning for a trip to the zoo.
Dominic and I at the zoo in 2008 -
We were there early, which was perfect - the crowds were forming as we were preparing to leave.
We stopped by Hyper Paiz which has now been completely transformed into WalMart, hung out at the pool and did some shopping at both the Futura mall and Miraflores. We had been very lucky in avoiding the rain all week. Just as Leslie and I were leaving Miraflores Mall, a downpour started. Everyone took cover, but we decided it was such a short walk we could make it back - we got soaked! Quite an experience!
Back at the hotel, we took a few photos is the chair Dominic claimed as "his area" and packed up for an earlier departure on Monday -
For our last 2 nights in Guatemala, we stayed at Grand Tikal Futura. Here we are heading down the elevator to meet Dominic's foster family. We were on the 8th floor and could see them in the lobby below waiting for us. We were all very excited, but not sure how Dominic would react.
Reunited after 4 years!
They were like 2 peas in a pod. Laughing, giggling, sharing "secrets".
We had dinner in the food court at the mall and then came back over to the hotel lobby for a bit.
