Day 5 Part 1 - Guatemala countryside, Casa Santo Domingo Hotel
Thursday, March 2, 2000
Day 5 Part was a "free day", so we took a road trip to the city of Antigua
in central Guatemala -- not
the island of Antigua! -- to do some sightseeing. Our first stop was to
see the famous, five-star Casa Santo Domingo hotel, where US
President Clinton stayed during his visit to Guatemala in 1999.

smoke emanate from the volcano in the distance.

frequent the entrance, selling their wares. We stopped to take a look inside.
