Fog mars sunrise at Tikal. Stop at Lago Peten Itza and visit Flores, a town on small island in the lake. Proceed to camp at Finca Ixobel near the small town of Poptun.

Finca means 'farm' and Ixobel is a working farm. However, it is mainly a hippy hangout. It really jumps especially at night. Met some really fun young ladies who humored my age. We had a lot of laughs. Met some of them again in Antigua.

It mostly rained the two days we were there. Not a big horseman but took the dullest horse back ride I ever remember. Some went tubing and wish I had.

Once more we got stuck in the mud plus the lights drained the battery. So we were very late leaving. Had to arrange for a tractor tow and recharge the battery.
