Sunrise over Lago Peten Itza

Three months in Central America and the only bus that reached its destination on time was at five in the morning - the hotels wouldn't open for hours!


But at least this meant we got to see the sunrise...


We were feeling chilly but then as the sun came over the mountains it started to heat the lake and a line of steam advanced towards us. The steam glowed as the colours changed from purple to red to orange. One of those moments...
