Tonight we are back in San Cristobal de Las Casas where we left our car. I just looked at the weather and it is 90 in Reno and 61 here in San Cristobal!
This morning in Antigua the van picked us up at 5:30. It was full but most of the people were going to Lake Atitlan. After they all got off there were just four of us. So it was a very comfortable ride. The weather has been cool here in the mountains but at our rest stop it was still dry and they had charcoal fires going in the restaurant. The hot coffee hit the spot.
They have had a lot of rain and the main road was washed out. We had to take a dirt road detour. The bus company was paying some of the villagers to add gravel to the road on the muddy hills. These Guatemalans are resourceful!!
When we got back on the highway the sun was shining through and it looked like a promising day. But it was raining when we got to the Mexican border and the rain just kept getting harder
We arrived in San Cristobal de las Casas at about 6 pm to torrential rains. We started walking to our hotel in the rain. Eventually we were soaked and still not sure where the hotel was so we got a cab. I need to either get a cover for my suitcase or get a new waterproof suitcase!! Pretty much everything is wet! At least we are in a dry hotel room 🙂
