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.

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 :)
This is a short video of me talking about my trip to Trinidad & Tobago and Carnival and my current location, Guatemala.
Here's a quick video of Jouvay morning dancing down the streets of Port of Spain, hour 2 of about 5.
So my sister and I got in to Trinidad at about 9 pm, went to our family’s house, tried to sleep but couldn’t really, then left the house in our old clothes at about 4 am to go to J’ouvert. We got paint splashed on us and colored powder thrown on us as we danced...
