Day 11: El Último Día
The chillest day of ’em all.
I woke up earlier than expected, saddened by the fact that it was my last day in Guatemala! For breakfast, we had a combination of fruits (see picture below) and tortillas with avocado. Pretty simple. $0
We walked over to Cementario Las Flores, where we visited and added flowers to several graves belonging to Adriana’s family members. The sun was overhead so we chilled for awhile in the shade, gawking at ducks and peacocks. The cemetery was nice — it was as if all of the greenery throughout the city was rounded up and thrown into a single manicured area. There were manmade lakes and rivers and fountains, too.
Once we made it back to Adriana’s family’s home, we ate the same herbal soup as the night before and some more tortillas with avocado from this morning. We bemoaned the fact that avocados would be harder to come by in the US. Our lunch got the job done, and I found myself taking a quick afternoon nap before heading out. $0
We bypassed traffic and made it to our gate with plenty o’ time to spare. I knew I’d be hungry so I wandered to every restaurant to check out their options. So disappointing. I ended up getting a Subway vegetarian sandwich. Never thought I’d find it to be delicious: toasted whole wheat bread with everything on it, including avocado, and drizzled with vinegar and olive oil. Add a bag of Lay’s barbecue chip and a bottle of Be Light lemonade (made in Guatemala!), and that is how I ended my last meal in Guatemala. $7.14
