We woke up on San Lorenzo Farm, home of our warmshowers hosts Rodolfo and Carla (thanks again to Rodolfo, Carla and their three children for being such gracious hosts!). Rodolfo spent about two years, bicycling through South America in the early 2000’s and he was a wealth of knowledge.
In the morning, we accompanied Rodolfo to San Ignacio for the Saturday market.
We could not believe the variety of fruits and vegetables available. We found spinach, something we have not had since the USA. We stocked up on papaya, spinach, bananas, peppers, tomatoes, starfruit and broccoli for that day’s snacks and dinner.
Our best find, however, was the fresh baked goods two Mennonite girls were selling. Sarah got a small banana bread with chocolate chips and I picked up a plate of frosted cinnamon buns. We devoured them so fast that we forgot to take a picture.
Back at the farm, while our tent dried, I climbed trees with the children and Sarah participated in some arts and crafts. I also helped with showing Carla wordpress (what we use to manage the content on our site) so that she and Rodolfo can update their website and promote their trail riding business.
Leaving the farm, we made the short ride to San Ignacio, where we sorted out a tour to Actun Tunichil Muknal for the following day and cooked up a feast before retiring.
