Up to the Santa Maria Volcan.

Quetzaltenango, 07-02-1990. A taxi got us to the foot hills of the Santa Maria Volcan. We had a quick look at The pueblecito called Almolonga which was inhabited by indigenous people, their women still wearing colorful indian clothing, their men the more tradional cowboy stuff with huge sombreros. The hike up to the Santa Maria Volcan top was great but tiresome and took us most of the day. Some local families beat us to it and were already waiting up there with water and food. They seemed to have gone up there to pray to one of their deities, we decided not to ask. We were supposed to have a date tonight with Anne and Sue - we met them some weeks ago in Mexico - but opted to relax instead in our very special bar from last night.
I presume I would rather have gone out Anne and Sue then spend another night at that crazy bordello.
But I'm travelling with somebody else and we made special deals about this part before leaving Amsterdam.
