To the River and the Lake

Semana Santa, the holy week prior to Easter, is Guatemala’s spring break and the country surges with tourism. We decided to road trip in Joni’s tough little honda civic (which had already survived a drive down to Nebaj from Canada), and headed to the Rio Dulce/Sweet River that flows out to Guatemala’s Caribbean coast. From there we swung back down to Lago Atitlan, the cosmic vortex even Hemingway couldn’t resist. Several of our group of expats from Nebaj converged at Maya Moon Lodge for Joni’s birthday, and after the crowd dispersed, Leo and I stuck around for a couple more days to see Danielle in San Juan.

Que buen viaje,
