I took the boat from the point of embarcation to San Marcos la Laguna, where the water is cleaner and old hippies seem to have taken over. Here there are merely spiritual healing centres by the dozen and alternative treatments aplenty. So nothing to do there for me except take pics of the stunning scenery and do some more reading. I had a super cheap lunch by buying a baguette and then ...
