Day 11: Thursday, August 9, 2012
So after eight full days of cultural exploration and learning about Guatemala and Chajul through the stories and generous hospitality of its residents, we set off for three days of much-deserved R&R on Lake Atitlan and then back in Antigua.
We set off for the Lake on Thursday morning from Chajul and arrived in Chichicastenango at lunch time where we met Jenn, who traveled from Boston to meet up with the group. We shopped around one of the largest markets in the world and then head for the lake. We arrived at night and strolled along the lake before a delicious vegetarian meal.
Tomorrow: Boat ride to new hotel on Lake
