Local time

Why would you arrive at the airport 2.5 hours before your internal flight departs? Simple answer: Because you were advised to do so. Well, that happens to us. Our flight to Petén was scheduled to depart at 6:30, but an airline employee advising to be at the airport at 4:00 am to be sure to have a place.

Looking back I realized this person did not have real time in mind, but a local interpretation of time – half an hour to an hour later. We arrived at 4:00 am to La Aurora airport in Guatemala City and stood as first ones by the counter long before it opens. We were told later employees only start working after 4:30am.

Could anybody tell me what time it is?
