Old Mixco

Old MixcoWednesday morning Julio took me up to the Mixco Viejo (old) Mayan ruins situated on a number of hill tops. Due to the limited access this was one of the last cities to be conquered by the Spanish. We were the only people there and beauty of the hilltop views and the serenity of the setting was spectacular.

Before leaving Guatemala City I decided to have a plate made for the bottom of my side stand as it stops the bike from sinking into the ground. I paid my £10 up front as I wanted the iron work shop to drop it off so that I could leave. When I got it, it didn’t fit and I had to pay another £15 to get it to fit. This time I left the bike with them and didn’t pay the rest until it worked but it meant another night in Guatemala City.

Thank you to Julio, Lusia and their sons for putting me up.
