Today we visited Hobbitanango. For you Lord of the Rings fans it’s an area famous for their hobbit houses. After our late breakfast of some good French toast and bananas at 0830, we had time to go to the ATM and look around a few stores for gifts.
Professor Lennon picked us up from the Hostel at 0940 to take us to the office where they would take us to Hobbitanango.
When we got to Hobbitanango the first thing we noticed was that the place had a great view of Antigua and the surrounding area. The place had archery, hatchet and machete throwing, a rope swing that everyone loved, and a small golf course to enjoy.
I tasted this delicious hot
chocolate that had cinnamon and almonds, I had to buy a pack to bring back to the states so my family could taste it. Archery was most certainly the highlight of the day because it was fun to do it, especially when we had moving targets.
We had a buffet-style lunch that consisted of steak, soup, rice, vegetables, bread, tortillas, and tostada.
After filling myself with the food I got
into a food coma and passed out in one of the hammocks and slept for a good hour.
The group had mixed feelings about Hobbitnanango, I was never a fan of Lord of the Rings so I didn’t
enjoy it as most people but that’s just me.
When we got back to the Hostel around 1500 and had the rest of the day off to ourselves. Some
people went out to the market to find gifts, and some of us, like me, stayed behind to work on daily logs and relax for the rest of the day.
