We arrived in Antigua only two and half days ago. Each day has extended beyond 24 hours...at least it seems that way. I do love that about traveling, every experience is new, exciting, and awe-inspiring. Antigua reminds me of Capitol Hill, Seattle in some ways, not making me homesick, just yet. There are hundreds of restaurants within walking distance, all from different ethnicities (Peruvian, Mexican, Egyptian, Indian, Chinese, Italian, American, and even some stating that they're Guatemalan). Every place we've eaten thus far has been great. But today, eating at a slow-food, organic, sustainable farm high in the hills above Antigua, had to be the best! We wandered around the farm for maybe 2 hours before we sat down and even looked at the menu. When we did, I could visualize exactly where the food came from, which row of the garden it was plucked out of, what kind of bee helped pollinate the delicious flavor to perfection. Everything about this farm spoke to me and got me even more excited for the next adventure on our trip...The Yoga Forest.
The thing about traveling without constant internet access (such a wonderful change of pace!) is that you write with the intention to post that day...but in actuality it doesn't get posted till days later. Oh well.
I am on the journey to create joy and live with full happiness. And my wish for you is to do the same!
