Last summer I went on holidays [US: vacation] to Guatemala with my parents. We spent two weeks there and it was a wonderful experience because we visited the Mayan pyramids of Tikal in the northeast of the country. They were very big and pretty! We really enjoyed the views from the top of these pyramids. Also, we saw other temples and we ate some enchiladas before returning to the hotel.

Clever stuff happening!
