We have completed our two weeks of Spanish school and have left the gorgeous lake area, and apparently we have left the nice weather at the lake!? We have some fond memories of our brief home in Panajachel and of our lovely neighbours and friends. We had a few days at the end of our schooling to explore a little more of the area so here are a few more pictures of Atitlan.
We will miss Dina´s Chocolates, and I´m sure Dina will miss our regular visits?
We will "miss" telling the dodgy dudes that we don´t need a boat ride!

And a great big thanks to Fran and Connie, who made is feel like family in our cosy little neighbourhood.

Dave and Theresa.

Most afternoons the wind picked up and the clouds rolled in. But in the whole three weeks we were there it didn´t rain.

Millions of onions on a terraced onion plantation near San Antonio. Although locals deny it - we believe the onions have caused people to cry and have consequently made the lake to rise to the record level it is at.
