Back on the bus to Antigua (2 or 3 hour drive). Antigua is a beautiful, old town with cobblestone streets and itīs very clean. There are a few more tourists here but it still doesnīt seem to be too crowded. I would come back here in a heartbeat, to explore a few more corners of this place. There are 3 volcanoes around Antigua: V. Agua (water) looks really close and massive at 3760m high. V. Fuego is 3763m and the highest one is V. Acatenango at 3975m. You can go on hikes up to the Summit but we didnīt have time
My big purchase today was a lavender jade ring set in silver and a piece of green jade on a chain for a necklace. I didnīt know that jade came in different colors! Different shades of green, lavender, black - some really nice jewelry.
We had our final group dinner (who will I share food with going forward????) and we said some goodbyes because weīre all departing at different times tomorrow to head back to Guatemala City for our flights.
