Panajachel, Guatemala, el 27 de noviembre, 2016
After café and huevos, I headed to Panajachel, the largest town on the lake. The easiest way to get there is via lancha, a small boat that waits until it has 15 passengers. It cost $5 for a 25 minute ride.
Panajachel is a typical Guatemalan pueblo with a market for the residents-
La Iglesia Católica San Francisco de Asis-
It has a wooden roof and combines Christian statues and Maya paintings-
Closer to the lake, in the tourist part of town, there are a lot of booths selling apparently the best priced crafts in the country. I didn't buy anything, except I did have a michelada, which was gross.
First, the bartender who was about 12, salted the glass and squeezed 2 large lemons into the cup-
It was a day of firsts because I had my first ever ceviche and wow! it's the best thing I've ever eaten-
It was served with plain soda crackers. It's going to be something I eat at home A LOT! It was sooo good! I can't believe I haven't had it before.
I continued walking around. The view of the volcanoes and lake is superb-
This time I wasn't so lucky with my timing on the lancha. This morning, I only waited about 3 minutes before we left but returning to San Pedro, I waited 30 minutes until the boat was full.
San Pedro is very pretty-
I bet this is the guy who tries to wake me up about 4 am!
