Lake Atitlan, Guatemala: The Oatmeal and Honey Moment

Oatmeal and honey, Santa Cruz, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. April 2016.



I can close my eyes and picture the oatmeal and honey moments of that breakfast at the Arca de Noé Hotel and Restaurant that is on the other side of the dock from La Iguana Perdida. The simplicity of the oatmeal in the large, plain bowl, the amber honey, looking out onto the lake. Flowers. Wooden plank table. Makes me inhale deeply and smile a little.

Did I have the café con leche before or after the oatmeal and honey? I don't remember.

Doesn't matter. It was milky, rich. I rarely take milk in my coffee, so the luxury of the added velvety weight to my coffee always gives me a little shock of pleasure when I do.

To spoon this oatmeal and honey, to drink the café con leche, outside, while looking onto Lake Atitlan, amidst bright flowers, so nice.
