Saturday Night in Antigua

We had a really nice dinner last night at La Pena del Sol Latino. They have great food and play live Andean (Peruvian) music several nights a week.

However, we left the restaurant in the middle of the first set, to get to bed early, because we had booked a 'Volcano Hike' and and had to get up at 5:30am to be ready for our pickup at 6am.

A good night's sleep was not in our future. First, it was Saturday night and our hotel, Casa Rustica, is very close to the central square. And apparently close to a disco... we had LOUD live music until 1am. Then after the music shut down, there were some fireworks set off, and that woke the roosters up.

It wasn't quiet until about 2am, and then we still had the random rooster going off.

At 4:15am, the guard in our hotel walked around banging on each door, trying to find the idiots who booked a 4am shuttle to somewhere, and didn't set their alarm. The noise also set the roosters off again. Whoever said that roosters only crow at sunrise just hasn't been around roosters much!

And, of course, we had to get ourselves up at 5:30am to go hike the volcano.

Nicki says it's a plot to keep her forever from getting a good night's sleep (she has just finished finals week at USF and is feeling quite sleep deprived).

I have promised her that TOMORROW she can sleep in.
