numerous restaurants and street food vendors lining the maze like paths flowing through the village (Street tostadas, so good!) Following these paths
takes you to the canoes boucing along the shores of the blue expanse of
Lago Atitlan or up to the many hiking trails to explore the amazing views
San Pedro Volcano has to offer.
Coupled with the great food and amazing views, San Pedro seemed to offer up some rather interesting characters as well
San Pedro is the place where travellers alike stop to further their Spanish skills at one of the many language schools scattering the town, it is also a well known spot to party. It is here, maybe stupidly, we decide to do some Spanish lessons! With another three days of Spanish booked I learnt (again) that Spanish is really hard to master when hungover (Sian.. Clearly I didn't learn from the last time)
Note: Simon must have a look of 'I like to party.' Having just checked into the hostel, we had been relaxing on the comfy cushions of the adjoining bar no longer then 5 minutes before a man selling special chocolate brownies appeared. We didn't leave those comfy cushions for the rest of the day!
Australia Day.. What can I say? Although we weren't surrounded by our usual crowd of friends, a slippery slide and the heat from the hot sun, we were surrounded by a good crew of Australian and international travellers, a swimming pool, (a little to cold to swim in) plenty of booze and Triple J streaming live.
Waking up the following morning with the worse hang over of our lives, our bus leaving La Laguna would have to wait for another day. Once we both felt ready to face the world we managed to find ourselves a cafe that sold VEGEMITE!!!! Super excited and ready for a taste of home, we were let down quickly with the knowledge that all the other Aussies must had the same idea, they had sold out!
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!!
