We spent New Year's Eve in Tapachula, Mexico which is just across the border from Guatemala. Crossing the border at 7pm on New Year's Eve was a pain in the ass. The Guatemalan officials were giving us an extremely hard time, saying we can't leave until the next day because the computers were turned off or something. I personally think they were just waiting to be bribed, but our incredible tour guide Jessica wouldn't put up with that shit and started ranting and raving in Spanish until he finally decided that getting rid of her was bribe enough. I regret not having a video of that one! Hopefully we'll get a video of Jess flipping out in Spanish before the end of the trip.
Here is a video of some of the festivities of New Year's Eve!
