I spent a few nights hanging out in Antigua. It was a great town and Guatemala is dirt cheap. My hotel room (which had 3 beds, and I slept in a new one each night) was $4 a day. I also went out to Volcan Pacaya and spent a few miserable hours hiking around up there. It was brutally cold and the cloud cover made it impossible to see a foot in front of you
I did meet a couple of really cool people though that I traveled with for the next few days. My new friend Ramann was kind enough to share her umbrella with me, which we used to try to block the bitter wind from attacking our flesh. I thought about jumping into the volcano for heat.
However, the top of the tree line was gorgeous and looked very Alice In Wonderlandish.
From there, I was off to Lago de Atitlan.
