Flores Guatemala, el nueve de inero, 2017
I had a horrible sleep! At 4 a.m., I was awoken to drums, singing and bombas! I thought I had left all that in Nicaragua! Then once it had passed, someone or something was walking on the tin roof right next to my bathroom window - clang, clang, clang. It seemed to go on until I finally got up. I probably fell back to sleep but it was super annoying!
I am staying at La Casa Del Lacandon-
on the island of Flores-
I hope to get a better vista of the whole island tomorrow from the other side at the Mirador.
The view from my bed is pretty sweet-
Only the window is very dirty. I guess not many people want to look at this!
The market is typical-
I had a Whopper at Burger King for lunch! It was okay but not as good as at home. Nachos with guacamole, onions, tomatoes and beans were for supper.
At 5 p.m., the noise started again-
but this time with more instruments than just drums-
It's the 'spring fair' and parades and celebrations are going to go on until next Sunday! I might not get any sleep here!
As the sun sets, the view is pretty nice off the second floor deck/restaurant where I've spent the afternoon-
I might go to some Maya ruins tomorrow and I might not. I have 4 more nights so lots of time to decide!
