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).

... though the locals probably thought we were idiots bracing ourselves for every bump in the road with white knuckles (we never went faster than 20km/h and the roads are better than SF so it was a mostly smooth ride). In any case, you probably want the boats on a hot day since it's cooler out on the lake, especially if you go to Santiago Atitlan.
Caught a bus (something between a shuttle and a chicken bus) at 9am, but it was another hour before we left Antigua because of picking up other passengers.

Found our lodging (la Laguna Luna Azul) drop our bags and headed out. Happy hour here we ...

Having enjoyed our coffee plus lentil soup combo of the previous evening, we opted to repeat the experience for another day. The winds were picking up and howling by the lake and we shut our windows to keep out the noise. We wondered if our boat trip tomorrow will go through or if we should make alternate plans to tour nearby villages instead.

Had lessons again in morning after getting up early to do my homework! Still felt pretty tired but not as bad as before. Had arranged to kayak with kristen so I got a few more to come along - kate, Shane and Will then we bumped into Eric along the way too so he came also. I was happy to get a double seeing as already tried a single one before and I was happy to share the load. I shared with Shane and he seemed ok with me (finally!). We kayaked in direction on San Juan via a house ...
... path and its unexpected obstacles. It was a very easy hike as we reached the summit 30 minutes later. There were already a few people awaiting the sunrise.
Gonzalo and I made ourselves comfortable on quite an authentic wooden bench and started to hypnotize the sun because both of us were a little bit cold. We figured that the first sun shines of that day could make us feel better. A few minutes before 6.00 the reddish ball started to appear and all of us could actually ...
