    A week in San Pedro La Laguna

    November 9, 2018 in Guatemala ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    I stayed one week on the shores of Lake Atitlan to learn Spanish, but did much more than that. For one week I spoke to my teacher for 4 hours everyday, lived with the family of Maria and Ventura, and was a regular client at the panaderías, so I had no choice but to learn a lot. Again Lena and I thought it was a wonderful idea to wake up during the night to go hike Volcán San Pedro, regretted it on the way up, and decided we'd do it all again when we got to the top looked at the view. I also painted for the first time since kindergaden, and the school took us on a visit to coffee plantations that ended up being a slightly scary night hike. Altogether it was an intense but also relaxing week, since it was the first time I slept in the same place for more than two nights in a row... Finally we left the lake behind headed for our next adventure: Honduras!Read more
