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 ...
... the home of Carlos Way, a Bed and Breakfast. There was another team of 18 members from North Carolina staying there, too. When we arrived, we met up with Suzanne and Olivia, who had been in Antigua for the second week. We all took a hot shower, the first for all of us since arriving in Guatemala, then had an amazing meal prepared by Carlos.
After dinner, we held an Awards Ceremony. Below is the award for each team member:
... lake and colorful murals brightened the drab gray cinderblock construction that characterized Santiago. It was a village we vowed to visit again when we had a bit more energy and it was a little cooler, but, as we'd been warned, the lake has a the ability to make you scale back your ambitions. We never did go back to San Juan, visit the yoga haven of San Marcos or walk to Santa Cruz. But we were ok with it. It seems impossible that we won't find our way back ...
San Pedro has a reputation of being a real Gringo town, but its just another nice place by the lake and people judge it for the fact that it has ATMs and shops (because of course no one needs those). I spent my first day wondering around and decided to save some money by cooking that night. After looking at the state of the kitchen and miserably failing at making my own Quesadilla, I quickly decided I will be eating out during my stay here. I took the 15 minute ...
... our ascense at 6 am and it continued for 3,5 hours (!) I have to admit it was really steep, but we made a lot of stops and finally I made it to the top :-). The way leads you through coffee plantations and beautiful wildlife. The view from the top is simply breathtaking! After an hour break on the top we started descending and it took us about 1,5-2 hours to climb down. Afterwards we felt exhausted and were covered in dust and dirt but were happy ...
