We woke up at six in the morning to watch the sunrise from atop a mountain. The red sun just looked like a red Christmas ornament gently levitating into the air. The view was spectacular not only because of the glowing sun, but also because of the mountains shrouded in mist. One volcano was even smoking.
Following the morning sunrise, we had a delicious breakfast and proceeded to undertake another hike. This time we made various stops so that Kevin could show us various medicinal plants that the locals use. One plant was made into tea and it helped lactating women produce more breast milk, while another different plan was used to rub on the skin, causing poison ivy, thus distracting the mind from the pain of arthritis. We even got to eat a plant that tasted like a sour apple.
When the hike concluded, we had lunch with the locals, and then we began our six-hour journey to Antigua. As we left, the children waved goodbye and even said ‘’Adios Enrique!’’ It was very nice to know they remembered my name!
