We were up at 4:45am! We had a tight schedule for getting back to Antigua in order to catch our 12:30pm shuttle to Lake Atitlan. The journey said it would take 5 hours, but who knows with Semana Santa parades taking place in Antigua!! Hence why we gave ourselves more than enough time to get there.

Whilst I was wandering I bumped into the two Spanish guys from the bus and the hostel. “Eeehhh! Hola! Fancy seeing you ...
... cameras. Once everybody was satisfied we kept on driving in direction to Coban. We were finally glad to take such an awful road because it allowed us to see how people usually live in remote areas of Guatemala. They lived in very poor conditions, but seemed to be happy or maybe they just resigned….who knows?
I considered last two hours to be demoniacally cruel. The journey seemed to be never-ending. My entire body was in pain, my butt was completely flat and ...
