Last Day in Antigua

Today the Guat Squad took on the mountains of Antigua, despite some “light” uphill terrain. Due to volcanic eruptions, the original plans of this crew were revised, but not tempered, thanks to the adrenaline packed attitudes of the bikers. After several miles of bumpy riding, the view was worth a few bruises. Antigua’s volcanoes were fully in view, as well as several century-old churches. Needless to say, the bike tour was an incredible experience packed with muddy, exciting, and invigorating fun. Unfortunately however, the brilliant Dr. B had to depart for Atlanta, but not before sending a wonderful chaperone, Mr. Anthony, to take her place. Adios y Buenas noches from Guatemala. Hasta luego!
