Today is Independence day. Right now thunder is roaring and the rain is pouring…but I can still hear the bands in the streets! Parades and crowds have filled the air with music and pride of Guatemala. The past few days have been very spirited and every minute is a fiesta. Tonight Parque Central will be the main scene for the big party as they recognize 190 years of Independence. September 15, 1821. ¡Viva Guatemala! (I now have to walk home in the drenching rain…qué divertido!)
A great weekend trip to Tikal.
