Several days ago, Glenn and I needed to head up to Antigua, so instead of sitting in traffic at the peak of rush hour traffic, we elected to leave early, before the crack of dawn to get to Antigua in plenty of time to take some photos with pre dawn lighting and on into the sun rise. We were not disappointed.
Then we connected with Tim and Lynn who drove up from the coast for the day.
We showed them several ruins and interesting historical sights. They tagged along with us as we visited Paul in his home. We drank in the view, overlooking the city from the foot of the cross.
Then we took a "less traveled", rustic road that wound up the Eastern slopes overlooking Antigua to a great place for a banquet with a panorama. We ate one of their delicacies, either fried or broiled Tilapia, complete with it's eyes, head and skeleton intact. On a "scale" of 1-10...it got mixed reviews.
I enjoyed my nachos rather than picking around the multitude of tiny fish bones that ran it's length, for the head, still attached, to it's tail. Yes, this makes quite a tale.
It was a good day, watching the sunrise and ever changing hues of pastels projected on the city sites and surrounding mountain sides, visiting missionaries and visitors and enjoying God's creation here in Guatemala.
