Distance travelled (by bike): 12,720
Another morning at the BMW dealer, eventually the bike appeared, all the parts replaced, the stand repaired. Nice expensive morning. But the bike was fixed and running well, nothing else mattered. Leaving Guatemala city having navigated and survived the one way streets, crazy road markings and buses i headed to Antigua. The distance isn't far, but i decided to take the scenic route and get off the motorway. Antigua is A UNESCO world heritage site, founded in 1543 it is said to have been the finest city in Central America in the 16th/17th century and was the capital city. Having been heavily damaged in earthquakes the capital was moved to Guatemala city, along with a lot of Antigua's treasures. The city is dominated by colonial architecture, the buildings, most only 2 storeys, painted in ochre shades looking onto cobbled streets. A Beautiful City.
