Fiesta In The Bathroom

February 14th, 2010

Day 27.  We got all of 10 minutes’ sleep last night.  We can’t be sure, but we think the fiesta finished at sunrise.  What we can be sure of is that the music was so loud that we’re convinced the the accordionist and marimba player were in our bathroom.  The bed was vibrating, and that wasn’t because it was Valentine’s Day …

In the morning we crawled out of bed and had a traditional Mayan breakfast of Maize soup with beans and a sprinkling of ground pumpkins with optional chilli and lime.  Very filling!

Today’s local pile of old rocks was the Copan Ruinas.  We were ably and amusingly guided by Saul (pronounced Sa-ool), an academic musician and ex-rock star from the 1970′s.  Every few paces, he broke into song, his favourite being “Give Peace A Chance”.  He was truly the highlight of the tour.

We relaxed for the rest of the day until our ears stopped ringing from last night’s fiesta.

By the way, we didn’t stay here, but Annie’s sister might do!
