My first three nights in the Guatemalan Highlands are spent at Casa Palopó, a pumpkin, blue and white coloured small villa on a hillside overlooking three magnificent volcanoes across misty waters of Lake Atitlán – alone. . . . I finally get to a Market Day in the little village of Chichicastenango – once purportedly the most colourful market in the world. . . . We leave the highlands and drive to the old colonial city of La Antigua Guatemala.
