    ... about 1.5hours. Antigua is surrounded by 3 volcanoes, Pacaya & Fuego are active and Agua is dormant. Pacaya is 2,252m high and it's last major eruption was in 2005 but there are constant displays of smoke and lava from it. The climb to the top was pretty tough and the altitude didn't help either.

    ... families have no other choice. They have to put food on the table. There are days when I am filled with joy as little girls dressed in the traditional corte and hupil (woven skirt and top) play tag while their Mom's pass through the tourists selling scarves and necklaces.
