Antigua, Guatemala…The Turning Back Of Time

Antigua is certainly not what I expected. A colonial city surrounded by numerous volcanoes with a unique culture. Although the city is in much need of restoration it is a popular destination by all walks of life. Young and old alike swarm to the busy Central Park where most everything is happening. Horse drawn buggy’s clatter on the cobble streets while men, women and children aggressively sell their items day and night. Colorful textiles such as scarves, wristbands and cloths can be acquired for just a few Guatemalan quetzals. Great bargains here for sure.
