Dawn:  We woke up to bedrooms which had cooled off overnight from a nice breeze and the help of some very loud fans.  Then we discovered a rooftop balcony with views of the 4 volcanos around us;  Pacaya, Agua, Fuego, Acatenango.  The air was thick with moisture, and the mountains were visible as though viewed through a foggy mirror.   Fuego appeased us by choosing that moment to have a minor expulsion of soot and
