Stopped for one night in the town of Huehuetenango on the way to Todos Santos , unfortunately arriving with pretty wet rucksacks and mostly wet clothes inside after the bags had been uncovered on the roof of the chicken bus & it poured down with rain on the way from Momo. Huehue is not much more than a pleasant transit town , with links to Xela , the Western Highlands villages and the Mexican border. The upside of staying there was that unlike Momo there were actually some open restaurants ... hooray ... so it was good to fill up on some nice food - yummy pasta at an Italian restaurant , accompanied by very cheap Guatemalan wine. Upon tasting the wine it was easy to understand (a) why it was so cheap and (b) why Guatemala is not renowned for its wine making prowess.
