The contrast is amazing. Beautiful country side and overcrowded little town, there are some rich people, and many poor people. To continue the contrast, lots of trash and lots of flowers. For the most part people seem to be happy and friendly. The only crime comes from the tourists who either won't, can't, or don't leave. They say if you leave something expensive lying around, it will walk off, but no one breaks in and steals. And there is no violent crime at all.

  1. I love your photos of San Pedro, especially the older Maya man with those beautiful knickers. Lake Atitlan is definitely the most beautiful place. You will have a wonderful time there.

    If you have time in the next few days, you might want to cross the lake to Panajachel, where the annual fair is going on until October 7th. You can see people from all over the highlands, and their different styles of traje.
