We had a long day in chichi and one of our party was unwell. The hotel provided an oasis of calm and comfort that really helped the day to go better. We had breakfast and afternoon coffee, both very nice. The hotel is beautifully decorated, and the waiters are in traditional costume, giving the place a nice old-fashioned (in the berst sense of the word) feel. Another unique feature about this hotel is the many parrots and macaws around the dining area. I felt a bit ambiguous about these animals, given the conservation problems these birds face in the wild, but we did really enjoy seeing them and talking to them (there were some real characters).

... harder in my life! Traveling for a whole year sounds like a long time initially but it is no where near enough time....so, trying to make the most of this possibly once in a lifetime opportunity, I'm trying to see as much as I can. That means doing an activity everyday and traveling from A to B everyday. Since being unemployed. I now work more than 8 hours a day and 7 days a week. I'm my own Manager, Financial Controller working out budgets, Travel ...
... As we went to leave the pier, the propeller hit a tree stump and bent, that's when we really thought we might be stranded but it was ok, the driver powered on despite looking like he might cry. Of course we had cancelled the swimming plan and arrived back in Panajachel, dried off and had a nap before the evening. Dinner was great, most of us are at a place called Circus Pizza, a lively restaurant with a live band playing Latin music. Me and Molly shared a massive pizza and a big plate ...
... docks to visiting tourists, but its approach was much different. Famous for its painters and weavers, rather than bars, hotels and restaurants, San Juan's primary businesses were thoughtfully constructed cooperatives designed to provide outlets for higher quality goods and wages. The heart of the village was again up a hill from the lake. Though crowded, central San Juan's streets were noticeably cleaner than any other place we'd visited ...
