A brief post from Santa Cruz on Lake Atitlan, where I’m installed in a backpacker’s hotel on this most beautiful lake. I have seen my quetzal (a juvenile male flying) and have been embraced (four limbs and a tail) by a spider monkey. Despite the deforestation, Guatemala remains a gorgeous country and a traveller’s paradise.
I see that the blog kerfuffle about Dawkins continues, and that the Unholy Trio continue their furious backpedaling, even trying to make blog hay from their mistake. Here, far from the madding crowd, it seems laughable and a bit pathetic.
Thanks to Matthew and Greg for their guest hosting. I’ll return to the fray about October 18.
