Thanksgiving in Guatemala? Yes, I think that's a brilliant idea! So Ilir, Stef and I packed our bags and hot-footed it out of town for a grand adventure in Guatemala. In Antigua, we roasted marshmallows on an active volcano for our Thanksgiving feast, which doesn't sound filling, but afterwards we treated ourselves to the most delicious ice cream before running off to meet up with our new friends at the Whiskey Den...when you are on vacation, who dares to judge? In Tikal, we watched the sunrise from the top of an ancient ruin, surrounded by the rain forest canopy and sounds of howler monkeys in the jungle below. At Lake Atitlan we hired a boat to take us across the lake so we could visit some of the local towns and hunt down gorgeous textiles. And in Guatemala City our gypsy cab dodged chicken busses to get us to the airport in time for our flight back home. It's always an adventure when you travel with Ilir, Stef and I were just along for the ride.
Places visited: Guatemala City, Antigua, Lake Atitlan and Tikal
