13,000 foot volcano Hike

... didn't have to do any more climbing at all for the day. We set up our tents, started a fire, and chilled out. At around 6pm we had dinner - chow mein - and a few plastic cups of red wine. Being that close to an active volcano which was constantly erupting was something quite special, and well worth the hellish climb. I had about 4 layers on, as most of the time we were so high up that we were actually inside the clouds, and it was spine chillingly cold. At about 13,000 feet the air ...

Days 39 - 42 - Antigua & Lake Atitlan

A travel blog entry by charliemclean on May 03, 2014

After spending 7 hours curled up in a ball in one of the most disgusting "toilets" I have ever had the displeasure of using I welcomed the hard mattress of my hostel in Antigua (a combination of food poisoning and motion sickness from the double decker bus). Ever on the tight schedule I arranged with Meera and Ruki (English doctors from Playa del Carmen and Belize) to head to Lake Atitlan the next day via the chichi markets.

Buenos Noches,
Pete is snoring away in the other bed but I figured I should do a quick recap of the day so I don't forget. This morning we woke up and had our final breakfast with Carlos, Norah, and Jose. As weird as it is, that was the saddest goodbye we've had yet. But I got Jose's carrot cake recipe from him too. It's not like carrot cake in the US. It's very good.

We began our stay in Antigua by exploring the suburbs :-) Our CS host, Fredy, owns a motorbike rental agency and he took us on a bike tour. As I have no idea of driving a scooter and don't really like it, I went with him. But Romana, who loves motorbikes, went by herself and she did pretty good considering the streets and the traffic in Guatemala ;)

First we visited a village called El Hato. There we had a nice breakfast in "Earth Lodge", with ...

... over the toilet to get into the shower. You can only half open the bathroom door to get into it I really do not know how 2 person could unpack and move around in the room. I was lucky as I had a spare bed to use. The rooms with just one bed was just half the size!

    It was dark, we had our packs and it was cheap. $15 a night for two. The room was kind of grimy and the security was lax. I would probably not stay again,but for what we paid and the circumstances it worked.
