Lake Atitlan

Panajachel, Guatemala

Today we drove to Lake Atitlan, in the mountains. There was a big bike race going on, we saw crowds gathered on the roadside but didn't see any of the race. In Solola, we stopped for an urgent bathroom break and walked around the festivities for a bit. It looked like the finish line was here, but Panajachel was another 30 minutes down the road. We took a boat across the lake to Santiago, which was very small but seen lots of tourists. The handicrafts were of exceptional quality, here. I think they are renowned for their embroidery. It wasn't the warmest or clearest day but the boatride was pretty fun.
