Catching the boat in Panajachel to San Marcos

Taking a break from our 'normal' routine in Panajachel, Guatemala, we took a boat trip to San Marcos to spend the day swimming in Lake Atitlan.

The boys love to sit in the bow

I just love the traditional traje that the men and women wear

My girls

Atlas is so cute (and smug) πŸ˜‰

The top is called the guipil (wee-peel), the skirt is called the falda (fall-duh), and the belt is the faja (fah-ha)

So cute!!

Lake Atitlan has been rising significantly over the past few years. This used to be a store or something like that. πŸ˜‰

Is it just us? Why is there always a discrepancy on prices whenever we take a boat. They told us Q.15... Ugh.

Look mom! A caterpillar.

Ahhh. Books. It's tough finding good (or any) kids books. It's sooo nice when we do.

That's what I love about Latin America. Even a motorcycle gets a 'Jesus is my loyal friend' sticker

Wow! What a surprise. There's a turtle in the pila.

When we arrived, he'd just jumped in with his goggles. He soon came back with a line of fish. Dinner.

We have to watch him clean the fish Mom!

Kimball loves to make strange faces on camera...

Cute little boys

I love these little old ladies

Good work hon

World-schooling at it's best

And we've reached our limits. Atlas can't go any further. πŸ™‚

    San Marcos is the town that made our decision to head on over to Asia!
    We stopped at a delicious restaurant, La Fe, and had the most amazing curry. We knew right then and there that a change of flavor is what we were seeking! We’ve traded corn tortillas for curries πŸ™‚

    If you go back, go to restaurant La Fe and get their veggie curry!

      Ahhh, yes, the change of flavors. That’s why we had ‘Thai’ week, and I made only Thai food. Sometimes you’ve just eaten one too many tortillas πŸ˜‰
