Hosted by a coffee plantation owner. We accosted a driver as he was opening his gates and subsequently pitched our tent on their landscaped lawn.
The workers bought us coffees and tasty snacks, cleaned the toilet and shower in the garden shed and generally made us feel welcome. After another freezing night in the tent, the 2 workers bought us egg roles and more coffee.
At 8:30, we made our way up the hill to see Zaculeu..a minor Mayan temple site.
Then the hills began again. Up and down between 1500 and 2000m on hills that lasted hours. (All as steep as the top of Ashford Hill)
Aguacatan for fruit overload lunch. A 400m climb to an amazing plateau with spectacular views in all directions. A few hair raising descents with brakes on fire before a kick in the teeth final climb to Sacapulas. 2 nights freezing in tents, traded for a loud but warm hotel room.
Off up the mountain tomorrow (on the bus)
