I have lived in Guatemala for over 1 year, much of this time researching the giant kites of Sumpango with the assistance of Julio Asturias. I am offering a very reasonably priced tour for people who want to see these incredible kites of the Kachikel Maya during this espcially significant Maya year of 2012. I truly hope some of you will join me in my second tour featuring the magnificent giant kites of Sumpango made entirely out of tissue paper. There are many photos and a lot of writing on my blog.
