|The main square in Nebaj - getting ready for one of the|
constant events going on before Navidad
|The Church facade in Nebaj|
|Women are wearing the traditional colors and designs of|
this community. They are predominately red. It's a cool
morning so many are wearing sweaters but the older women
still use shawls.
|It's hard to take photos of the women so I often get their backs|
|You can see a variety of headdresses being worn. Some like the woman third from left were elaborate winding of ribbons while many wear a folded cloths on their heads like the woman in the center.|
|The younger women are likely not to wear|
headdresses at all.
|Snapped from the car on the road. It was too narrow with|
steep drop offs or ditches for us to stop anywhere where there
|I took this picture and the similar one to the left|
through the car windshield. People pack into the
back of the trucks and go long distances!
|It's clearly a job to hang on!|
|We stayed one night at a the Black Cat Hostel in|
Quezeltenango and then moved to the Casa Renaissance.
This charming American girl, Ann, was working there
temporarily, here with a friend.
|The children are so beautiful and once in awhile let|
me take their photo. They love seeing the picture
|This galleria had shops and restaurants inside under the glass|
roof, a copy of an Italian design.
|We loved this family group performing in the city square.|
|This bridge was built during a huge flood to cross the street?|
That's what the sign said.
|Families are all out at night in the Plaza and this one|
asked me to take their photo with their cameras
and then, as you can see, took one of us with them.
|It's really cold at night here and this woman was really|
bundled up. I love her hat!
|The streets around the Plaza are blocked with temporary|
restaurants and people selling food and goods.
|It was early in the evening - the action really starts quite late.|
|We couldn't resist these freshly made churros - Yum!|
