Travellers flu and Lake Atitlan
Air Con induced cold and sore throat a.k.a travellers flu. Why does aircon give you such a stinking chest and cold. 8 hours on the linea dorada bus and I feel like I’ve swallowed twenty razor blades and my nose secretions are no one’s business.
Yesterday we had a mega lazy day. We had a little canon balling session in the lake in the morning. Rafe was practicising his diving for the 2016 olympics.
We then walked to Santa Cruz and went for lunch, did a bit of shopping in the village then walked back. It’s a 30 minute walk each way so I don’t feel so bad for other wise doing sod all most of the day. We’ve made friends with the neighbours felines too.
We were going to climb Volcan San Pedro today but the travellers flu continues and we were in no fit state for a 5hr hike. It’s a good job we didn’t anyway as a cloud has been sat at the summit all day long. I’ve actually felt cold today for the first time in two weeks. It’s overcast and a bit drizzly.
Instead we just bimbled to San Pedro by Lancha and had some lunch, got lost and did a bit of shopping. We have a full on kitchen so we have been buying breakfast and supper foods in to make ourselves then having lunches out. Seems as it goes dark at 18.30 and the boats stop about 17.00 anyway. The rest of the day we’ve just spent grazing on homemade cakes from San Pedro and drinking hot drinks.
Tomorrow we are going to head to the tourist magnet of chi chi market. Knowing me I probably won’t buy anything as I’m really awful at haggling.
