Our borrowed guide book was useless with directions. Cycled around town 3 times in light rain before we found the Ixil cultural centre and artisan's market. Was not really worth the visit with most stall closed and the others touting tourist tack.
When still raining and cloudy, we hopped on another bus to take us back to the outside world (the Ixil villages and towns do feel other workd like after being cut of from the rest of Guatemala due to the mountains and because of persecution during the civil war.
Dropped at the junction, we had 500 meters to climb before the promise of downhill for days. Passed Uspantan, arriving in Chicaman just too late for the last bus to Coban.
