Christmas at Lago de Atitlan
Half of Lisas bag was packed with „Christmas presents“ for us: new tires, tubes and guide rings from our Sponsors (thank you Continental and Cosmic Sports), sunscreen, magnesium and delicious German CHOCOLATE! Oh yes, we four had a great time and good food!
One day we climbed up the „Indian Nose“. The astonishing view was worth the rip-off prices – no ticket house but different locals asking to pay. That’s really a nice business idea: standing around, pretending to be the owner and asking for money…. however.
The town was full of little colorful lights squawking jingle bells drowned by firecrackers. Honestly, it felt more like New Year than Christmas. Of course, we were missing our families in these days and especially a glas of a good red wine that our fathers would have served with great relish, and a piece of tasty cheese and… No, we are absolutely happy and won’t complain now!
And did you know? Jesus was born in a hammock!
