Or Swim!

“No! Don’t jump Papa!” … While Papa jumps from a 8m platform Mama takes the calmer entrance to the lake.

Pirates of Lago de Atitlan

This time a boat trip across Lago de Atitlan – a stop to remove plastic from the motor

Cycling in Guatemala

Let’s say cycling in Guatemala is different. The volcanic landscape is stunning but the average altitude from the east to the west lies around 2000m/6000feet – most of the time it goes up, sometimes down 🙂 and as for the humidity, a lack of hard shoulders and you wouldn’t believe what comes out of the exhaust pipes! Local knowledge of how far away things are is not too reliable & can vary from 2km to 22km and flat is definitely not flat!
