Antigua, Guatemala – the Old Colonial Capital

Antigua is a cute little town with cobblestone roads and lots of colors. Several churches and other structures had been destroyed by earthquakes in the 1700s, so there are a few ruins to explore, including la Iglesia de San Francisco, home of Hermano Pedro.


Carnival Tuesday – Trinidad 2010

After an exhausting Sunday and Monday, we put on our costumes to get ready for Carnival Tuesday. We spent the entire day walking and jumping up with a band called Harts. I thought my legs were going to give out on me! My sister and I were wearing old costumes of my aunt's from a few years ago, but no one seemed to notice :)
