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).

We have another couple of peop,e wanting to watch movies so we give them control as we pack our bags and wait for our bus arrival. I had been sitting online trying to research the trip from Antigua to Leon ...
... as the fancy catches you. On this trip, we compromised and chose to stay put at a single location for 3 days and undertake day trips. There are great benefits to this mode (no heavy packs, no packing/unpacking every day, nice restaurants etc.) but it limits the radius of your circle as you have to keep the timing of the last returning chicken bus from your destination. We chose to stay at Panajachel, on the shores of Lago Atitlan (the cradle of ...
... we walked down to a local cemetery. While this cemetery isn't as extravagant as others we've seen here in Guatemala, we really enjoy the set up the cemeteries. Unlike most North American cemeteries that are often plain and sombre, the ones here celebrate life. Where the dead rest is colourful and grand. Often, it's decorated with paint and flowers. When people here visit these sites, it must be hard to feel down and sad. Elmer, among others, have told us people ...
... bus basically drove us up) looking down at the lake as the sun was coming up. It was breathtaking.
We went back to Yo Mama's House (naturally, the name of our hostel in backpacker's paradise), and were going to take a nap before we took off to another little town on the lake, San Marcos. But, probably for the first time in my life, I couldn't nap and neither could Lauren. So we took off to San Marcos and made it there by 9 am.
San Marcos is ...
... and making do with what they've got makes me realise that being in our Lucky Country does make us more materialistic and that we worry about owning things too much, things we usually don't actually need! I don't actually NEED the car, big screen tv, 4 bedroom house etc....sure, they're nice to have, but I don't NEED those things to lead a happy life (it just makes it more comfy, I know, but I'll still live without them!). And it's not the end of the world if ...
