Our last day at Lake Atitlan. On this day, we hired three models who came to the gardens and posed for 2 hours in the hot sun. I painted 'Amilcar' who was 16 years old. He was dressed in his 'traje' (trah-hay) - the local dress for males of the area.

After lunch, I didn't feel too well. It believe it had finally gotten to me. We were always careful to drink bottled water, but I think the change in foods and just plain eating so often and so much, may have done a number on my stomach. I had to take some 'down time'. Ugh. I was never the same the rest of the trip, but didn't let it stop me from really soaking everything up. The only thing I missed was doing the "zipline" through the jungle with a few of the others. Bummer. Went to bed early, we were to be up and at em in the morning to go to Antigua, via the marketplace at Chichicastenango.
