San Marcos: Guatemala: Boating in Lake Atitlan

Catching the boat in Panajachel to San Marcos

Taking a break from our  normal routine in Guatamela, 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

Atlas is so cute (and smug) ;)

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

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

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

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

  Greg makes a big splash ;)

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. :)
