Ashley and I have been living in a hotel room on the 4th floor of the San Francisco Hotel in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala for the last 3 weeks. San Pedro is located on the beautiful Lake Atitlan, which I believe to be the caldera of an ancient volcano. To illustrate the beauty of this place, I wanted to share a few photos I took from our balcony. For those that are Interested, I tried out a few new photographic techniques: the first two are stitched panoramas, and the next three are HDR images.

One last thing, all our photos are for sale, if you see something you would like to hang on your wall anywhere on this site, please use the contact us form and we’ll work out the pricing.






And finally,

Images of our balcony and our hotel room.  It’s just larger than our bed, but has a private (hot) shower!

    This looks pretty! The view looks amazing. Also, having a private hot shower sounds pretty awesome (my husband and I have had a grand total of one private hot shower in the past few months of traveling)!

      We feel pretty spoiled even though…

      I didn’t mention that the shower is electric. That’s right, there are bare electric wires running from the wall to the shower head. We’ve talked to a few travelers now that have been electrocuted while having a shower.

      Fortunately we seem to be getting off easy with all the hot water, and none of the shock therapy.

        That’s happened to me. I found that showers in Guatemala seemed to be built for shorter people, and the electric shower heads were difficult to avoid.

        Beautiful pictures.

        PS School’s in again – not the same without Ashley!

          I’ve been zapped by the electric shower heads a couple times now… not fun. I never know how hot the water will be until I turn on the shower… sometimes it’s steaming hot and others it’s only lukewarm.

          Now that school is in again, I really feel like this trip is something more than a vacation… before now, it could have been any old summer break (although I’ve never done anything this cool on a summer break before).
