Lake Atitlan, Guatemala: Up to Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. April 2016.



Santa Cruz' village center is up high from the public dock. The road to the village is steep. In the photo above, do you see the multi-story yellow structure? That's the artisanal and culinary arts school. That's our destination.

Let's take that walk up the hill, using the yellow vocational school as our focus.

Looking down toward the dock, we see a tuk-tuk tuk-tukking up the hill.

We're getting closer.

Voilá, we have arrived at the summit.

It's mid-afternoon. We've already had lunch and it's too early for dinner, so we have fresh mango juice. Yum. We enjoy the view. Despite the haze. Which is the curse of my month in Guatemala.

We peek into the yard below and see ... what is that? .... a duck? a chicken? a chuck? ..... sitting atop a dog, which doesn't seem to mind.

I'm sure the neighbors love having tourists peering into their yard every day. Maybe the more polite tourists don't peer.

Well, the name of this journal isn't Living Peerless.
