Our recovery room beds had cranks on them. Nothing electric. I had to remember how to calculate a drip rate. No IV pumps. This was old school nursing!
After we were done packing we got to travel to Lake Atitlan and visited a couple of villages surrounding the lake. There are 3 (active) volcanoes that surround this area and when it's not cloudy you can actually see the steam from the crater. It's somewhat touristy so there are tons of street vendors everywhere. These people are pushy! Little kids 5,6,7 years old are selling things like pros. And they are very persistent! They don't leave you alone and follow you everywhere. We had lunch in one of the villages. The only way to get there is by water Taxi. Tons of fun!
The local women are making and selling their things. Lots of cute stuff!
We headed to a couple of little villages along the lake to see what they had there. If possible, they were even more pushy. The women would be standing on the docks when we got there trying to sell to us.
(We didn't eat here. But I was tempted)
These boys followed Yvonne and I all around the little village. They wanted a pack of playing cards that she had in her backpack. They offered to trade some handmade bracelets for them but she kept telling them no. In the end they finally wore her down.
