    I almost missed the bus due to an increasing number of opportunties to shoot interesting pictures. I would have liked to spend at least another hour or so in town, but even the bus ride and brief stop that we had was well worth the time spent.

    Soak up the culture in Uspantan. Bear in mind that the Mayans aren't noisey or particularly fiesta oriented. Uspantan is a quiet agricultural town. I noticed adobe construction, but I saw also wood construction, presummably from local forests. I saw many colors of native corn drying in the sun. Mostly, I noticed the men, women, and children.

    The bus from Coban leaves in the afternoon everyday, I believe. It failed to show for us on a one day, but that was an exception. The ride is about 4 hours, as I recall, and that provided us about an hour or so to walk about the pueblo. Then, we waited for the bus continuing on to Sacapulcas. Although it's important to not miss these buses, the pueblo is so small that one can here the motor turning on. Preoccupied by photograpy, I was late, and had to chase the bus down. Villagers get on and off the bus as it proceeds from one pueblo to another.
