Day 21 – Ruins

Today was the team’s “free day” so we all headed up to some nearby Mayan ruins in the city of Tecpan. Though these ruins aren’t especially spectacular, they are only about 90 minutes away and the team seemed to enjoy them.

For lunch, we went to this amazing restaurant that puts all of those Brazilian Steakhouses (like Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil) to shame. For $20.00, you get a huge grill full of strip steaks, t-bones, chicken, sausage, and ribs that feeds four people! So good…

In the afternoon, we went to Antigua to do some tourist shopping in the artisan markets and we toured the ruins of the Cathedral from the 1600’s. I got a new Guatemalan soccer jersey (only $9.00)!
