One week and two volcanoes in Guatemala
Together with V-E-I I spent one week in Guatemala (in 2011) to visit some of the active volcanoes.
Starting point of all of our trips has been the cosy and colorful city of the colonial era Antigua where we enjoyed the atmosphere as also many tasty cup of coffees.
We first visited the Pacaya volcano. But we were not very successful, on the one side due to the bad weather, on the other side because of the missing activity.
But we were compensated for that at the Fuego volcano which we climbed escorted by some local bandits (to protect us against non-local bandits). At this volcano we experienced many (partly very strong) eruptions under a clear sky!
The last sunny day we visited Lake Atitlan. We enjoyed three of the most beautiful villages around the lake and experienced local markets, a coffee fabric and a lot of colorful clothes.
