I will post Lake Atitlan and hostel pictures as soon as I get to somewhere that has free wifi. We can not upload pictures here because it will crash the Internet system.
Great hiking yesterday from Santa Cruz to San Marcos and then straight up the mountain that afternoon to the village. Today it will be watching soccer with the rest of the world and relaxing in the hammock all afternoon watching the lake and volcanoes.
There are houses with beautiful views for $250 a month. A good option in the future for escaping those hot Louisiana summers. Nights here are actually cool and require a blanket while the days are mostly in the 70's.
I leave in the morning to go to Chichiastenago for the famous Thursday and Sunday markets in which the Mayan hill tribes come to town to sell their wares. Soon I will be heading to southern Mexico to see Mayan temples and then back to Tikal in Guatemala for what is supposed to be the best of the Mayan temples. I am sure some would argue that point.
