Whaaah--It is cold in New Jersey! Even in the mountains of Guatemala, it wasn't this cold. I want to go back to warm nights and sandy beaches and stars that light up an indigo sky. Sigh. Anyways, here is a pic of a Lent Festival being held in the mountaintop town of Antigua, Guatemala. Numerous festivals, that include processions, and the carrying of statues dressed in elaborate costumes, over equally elaborate carpets of flowers arranged in intricate designs, are held this time of the year. If I can put these photos into a slide show, I will post them as same. Here are a few more, for your enjoyment. Guatemala, the Yucatan, and Belize were fascinating.
