Newfoundland to New Mexico to Guatemala

I finally sold my house. After 6 months of waiting, and two false alarms – I finally sold my house. Backing up a bit, I left Conception Bay South Newfoundland, and my job, for an independant contract in Jaibalito, Guatemala, in February, 2014. Why Guatemala?
