Images of Antigua Guatemala
It’s my last day in this beautiful, historic small city. No more relaxing on the Parque Central, the peaceful town square where locals and foreigners alike sit for hours, people-watching and enjoying the springlike temperatures. No more negotiating the stone streets and lumpy sidewalks to discover tiny shops and cool restaurants. And no more searching for a meal of tepesquintle (the rodent that is a traditional Guatemalan dish, but no one seems to ever eat).
I’ve assembled a few of my favorite images that I’ve taken during this visit. Still to come is a review of the amazing place I’m staying, Posada del Angel, which has welcomed presidents including Bill Clinton (I’ll have plenty of photos and a video), plus a video showing highlights of Antigua itself.
