White Winterval in Guatemala?

It may not be snowing anywhere near Europe's ski resorts, but it is up in the highlands of Guatemala. Yesterday it was colder in Antigua than it was in London.

V has only been back there for a few days but has already had a bit of a shaking. She told me that the experience reminded her of the one time she was out on a sailing boat off St Lucia: the earth all around her was rippling just like a choppy sea.

It was Jin's first quake. He stood still, ears pointing skyward then trotted over and rested his head on her leg when the tremors had ceased.
