The four of us who have been in Antigua for the past one or two weeks studying Spanish were able to check into Las Faroles Hotel starting at 1:00 p.m.  The remainder of the group arrived at various times in the evening.  Las Faroles has a beautiful trail with a tree and bush-lined path – an oasis in the midst of a residential block in Antigua.  The rooms are similar to hotel rooms in the United States with comfortable beds, shampoo, large towels, and hot water - this last somewhat variable by room.  As a new member of the team and one not from Portland, I was excited to meet my roommate, Mopsy, so I waited up for her arrival, which finally happened around 10:45 p.m.  Since breakfast was to be early and a command performance, we soon turned out the lights and sailed off to sleep!
