    If you make it to Antigua, Guatemala in the next two weeks drop me a line. I am not sure where I'm headed from here.

    It is likely that we will meet by a short margin of time. I will zoom past Belize and be working near Antigua. I also have a potential girlfriend there

    At long last! I am back from Cuba and I have a LOT of material to publish! I need to organize all of this writing and gather up the best shots, but for now I will leave you with an exciting tale of friendship, ruins and corrupt police. Glad to be munching on some capitalist treats as I write!

    Now, it's time for the long-waited Cuban adventure. This is the first part out of a trilogy on my experience in Havana, starting with a general intro, continuing on the quest of the Gullwing, and ending with a series of cool snippets that I could not fit anywhere else. May I mention that any of the money donated was NOT used in this part of the trip, due to the legal constrains by Indiegogo and the US policy towards Cuba. Silly I have to write this disclaimer, but law is law. Pffft. Enjoy, anyway!

    Now it's time to make history. This European Life proudly presents one of the longest, most exciting articles of the whole saga: the story on how I went to Cuba to find the lost Mercedes 300SL Gullwing, and the long road to finding it!

    New delivery! A few short stories aside from the quest of the sad, sad Gullwing, the last of the Cuban trilogy. Some factual, some just plain funny: from an unsuspectingly good-hearted mechanic to a ride Casto's limousine.

    Life is busy! I am currently studying for the GMAT, so I am not having too much time to spend in sightseeing. Someone has to compensate for six years without math!

    In the meanwhile, here's the next viral sensation in the automotive world:

    That's a video of the dilapidated 300SL Gullwing that I found in Cuba!

    As painful to watch as it is, I thought to myself that it's part of the car's life cycle. I have never seen a 300SL in such shape, and it is beautiful to see something so radically different to the over-restored garage queens in the vaults of millionaires. One day it will be out of that yard, I know. But the simple fact of documenting such a significant car in such dilapidated condition is historically relevant nevertheless!

    At long last, after a month of rest and a few amazing experiences, I have retaken my writing duties. This is the first one out of three articles I plan on writing about Guatemala: the first one on Antigua, the second one of Lake Atitlan, and the third one on Guatemala City or just a classic set of "World Snippets". Hope you enjoy this first delivery!

    A week-long visit to one of Guatemala's most scenic natural wonders, Lake Atitlán! The expedition will continue on the 1st of March, down through Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. A whole new continent awaits!
