Antigua Guatemala, A Feast For The Eyes

With lots of hugs and tears we left the smokey air of San Antonio for the three hour van ride to Antigua.  Antigua greeted us with a “puff” from Volcan el Fuego and the finest food you can get at Posada de Don Rodrigo. The people from Guatemala City visit Antigua on the weekends and Saturday was a zoo.  The downtown street are blocked off and it is generally a crowded street festival.  Today we will lay low and wait for the crowds to diminish.

Volcan de Fuego on the left gave us a show. This is the volcano that had a major eruption the day before we left home.

Finding your away around Antigua is a challenge. A map is a must.

As you walk the narrow streets all you see are walls. This is our hotel from the street.

We each has rooms opening into a central garden. There are no other guests so we have the garden to ourselves.
