La Mesilla to Xela

It was midday by the time I crossed the border from Mexico back into Guatemala, but there were still buses available to Xela via Huehuetenango. My only other option at this point would have been a night bus to Guatemala City. I figured why not Xela, since I'd skipped it during my first three trips to western Guatemala. 

Drenched in sweat and still another 20 minutes from leaving. Gotta get on a bit early, though, unless you prefer standing or being cramped into an aisle seat.
