Lago de Atitlan - Sunday, March 23, 2003

This past Saturday was our last day of Spanish School, woo hoo! No more homework. Now the trick is to keep using the language. We´re doing pretty well with it so far. We took our host family out for dinner on Saturday night and enjoyed our last evening with them.

On Sunday, took the early morning bus to Lago de Atitlan which is big lake formed by a collapsed volcano sitting at about 1500m in elevation. It´s very beautiful here and we now why many people visit this area. We stayed one night in town, and today are off for the small Mayan village of Santa Cruz de Laguna. Our accomodations are right on the beach so we´re looking forward to relaxing and reading our books. On Tuesday, we´re off for two nights to the very hippy town of San Marcos de Laguna. There are many people involved in the healing arts, yoga, massage, etc. in this little hamlet. Should be fun. Both of these places will cost about $10US a night for the both of us.

We end our stay in Guatemala with two days at the Casa del Mundo right on the lake. It costs about $18US a night and is supposed to be one of the nicest accomodations on the lake. Hopefully we´ll be able to rent some kayaks, do some swimming and catch up further on our travel planning and books.

After this last week in Guatemala, we´re off for the fun and sun of the Pacific Coast of Mexico. We look forward to many fish taco´s and cervezas while lounging in hammocks on the beach. We´ll be sure to reportl and let you all know how much fun and relaxation we´re getting when we get to a town with the internet. Should be cool. Gotta go catch a water taxi!
