Childrens Bicycle Parade in Panajachel

Rudy Giron: Guatemala &emdash; Childrens Bicycle Parade in Panajachel

It’s encouraging to see children being taught the culture of using bicycles as an efficient and ecological means of transportation. Now, let’s hope the institutions and government can catch up by providing parking spaces for bicycles and stop discouraging those who prefer to ride bikes instead of cars.

Guate Pride

Guate Pride by Eddie Deleon

As I previously mentioned, many Guatemalans living in the United States return home during holidays. Many come with their whole families, including some with sons and daughters who are visiting Guatemala for the first time. This year one of them was Hector, my nephew, who was born and lives in Wisconsin. It was great to see him in his “natural habitat” and his Guatemalan pride in full display.

Only in San Lucas!

Only in San Lucas by Eddie Deleon

Semana Santa is celebrated in San Lucas Tolimán with the same fervor as the rest of the country and a few peculiarities. One significant change is the use of pine needles for the preparation of most procession carpets, or alfombras, as well as the construction of arches made out wood poles. Hanging from these arches are decorative lights as well as a number of contraptions filled with confetti which is dropped over the passing procession by pulling on a cord. This Duffy Duck Cucurucho is one of the most fun ones I have seen in the last few years.
