Across the Lake

After our night at Buddha Bar, we got up and checked out of Mr. Mullets (approaching checkout time, due to the previous night's activities), and moved all of our things to Hotel Mikasa. I'm not a huge fan of having to pack up the entire bike just to move across town - I think this might have been the only time I've done it on the trip - but for how nice the hotel was, it was worth it. We ended up with the four of us in a private room for the first night, which turned out to be pretty nice as well, and once we got settled we started looking at what else we wanted to do around the lake.

We didn't have much more that we wanted to do in Antigua, so after returning from the volcano hike we started planning our departure to the next location: Lago Atitlan. San Pedro had been on my list of places I wanted to go since the beginning of the trip, for the amazing stories I'd heard from Bryce's blog, and from everyone else who was on a similar route and had been through there. Excited to get there, we started looking at what we could do once we arrived.

Dan and Delphine and I woke up nice and early on Saturday morning, got the last few things of ours tucked away in the back room of the hostel (since we would be sleeping on the volcano that night, we wouldn't need a bed in the hostel), ate the breakfast provided by the hostel, and hopped in a van to head up to our starting point for our volcano hike.

After the long day of bad roads, tiring riding, and getting lost in Guatemala City, a lazy day was in order for me Antigua. Breakfast at the hostel was followed by a bit of relaxing by the pool, and then the four of us headed out to explore town for a bit.

By the time I woke up at Greengo's in the morning, the Belgians were on the way on the bus. I got my things packed up slowly, procrastinating because I didn't want to get back on the horrible road out of Semuc Champey. But eventually, the time came for my offroad skills to be tested once more.

And it was quite a test.
