T – We like Panajachel. So we decided to hang out here until we begin our Spanish lessons. We changed our class from Antigua to San Pedro. The cost saving was $200AUD to begin with! Plus the one in San Pedro has a really good review, has few students at once and we can have our own private house for $50 for the week. Score!
Today was spent wandering down to the lake edge through the throngs of tourists and the tourist tat that accompanies them. Our hotel is just of the tourist street and up next to the locals markets and food stalls which we really enjoy.
I stuck my toe into the lake thinking it would be nice to go for a swim, but it was frigging freezing! No thankyou!
We basically just chilled out for the day, hanging out in the hotel and then the local bar before wandering off to get another incredible torta. We spent the rest of the night sleeping in fits and bursts while the locals set of a bazillion fireworks that cumulated in an epic fireworks show right on midnight. Very cool!
Tomorrow is Christmas Day and we head around the lake to San Pedro where we will be doing our schooling.
Merry Christmas all!
