Suddenly this old tribeswoman turns into mental psycho *****, standing in front of us and shouting demanding money, and trying to block our path thinking she’s some kind of wall or something. The other guys didn’t bring any cash with them as they heard there had been robberies on the trail before, so had nothing to pay her with. I just kept out of it as the Canadian guy spoke much better Spanish and ...
My final visit to Antigua was bittersweet, as I once again fell for the cities charms; before departing and this time for good. Whilst there, I caught up with school and dance friends and added merengue to my repertoire. After an uneventful journey, my anticipation grew as we drove into the cobbled streets of Antigua and again I felt like I was coming home. I walked swiftly back to the Yellow House and was greeted by Anna next door, who was mid salsa lesson. ...
... central, clean squares.
A peaceful place. We both spent quite a bit of time in markets here. There is some great shopping to be done! Now to fit all these extra items in our backpacks...hmmm!
We enjoyed staying at our hostel here too; our hostel host was a fantastic character that looked after us with free beers for welcome drinks and delicious breakfasts to look forward to each day!
