I left the hostel and went exploring Antigua, quickly realising this was not a big town. I explored the Plaza, Central Square and Market; the Plaza was throbbing with people and stalls all going about their daily business, in contrast to the Square where people were sitting and chatting and idly watching the World go by ... I did this too. Having had lunch in a little cafe I headed back to the Hostel to relax for a bit.
I headed back out around 16.00 and watched as the people got ready for the Christmas parade which was apparently happening later that evening. Again I headed back to the hostel and sat out watching Scary Movie 3 and then 2 while supping cold beers... life was fun! I had a delicious curry at the Hostel and got chatting to some Germans, a Swedish girl and a guy from Canada.
After a while we all headed out to a bar, almost the whole hostel went out together ... I was sitting there alongside 8 Germans, a Canadian, Swedish, Irish and some Americans ... it was a very cool evening. I headed home at about Midnight, ready to get up bright and early in the morning to hike up Volcano Pacaya.
