Lent’s First Sunday Procession

Lent's First Sunday Procession

Sunday was such a great day in La Antigua Guatemala; nice weather conditions and a wonderful atmosphere all around town with people enjoying the processions. The Holy Week aromas could be smelled everywhere. Music, balloons, chupetes, clowns, cucuruchos, town fair food; what a cornucopia for the senses.

If you don’t already have your plane ticket, I suggest you buy now, life is too short to miss Semana Santa in La Antigua Guatemala. 😉

Portfolio Aside: Some of the photos that you see here everyday were turned into high-quality large-format prints to add colorful imagery to the walls of Máximo Nivel Spanish School in La Antigua Guatemala. If you’re interested in getting large format prints from my photographs to add color to your walls or as gifts, please, get in touch with me. Of course, you can also purchase 8″x10″ and 11″x14″ high quality prints from the Buy photos page. If you want to keep up with all the places where the AntiguaDailyPhoto images show up, check the Portfolio page regularly.

    Alternatively life is too short to watch the same thing happening over and over again every year 🙂

  • @Guy, you can’t say that until after you have seen Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala for 99 times. :-))

    I’ve never spent Holy Week in Antigua, but it’s definitely something I’d like to do in the near future. Maybe dress up as a cucurucho and participate in one of those processions (which I’m sure are heavy as heck).

    • @Erick, you should do that… put it now on your to-do list to make it happen. We live the life we set to live or the life is thrown at us if we take passive stance.

  • The post is very nice as usual; however, the photos in the slide show, what a gift! My favorite: the candies rosario.

    • @Erin, I am glad you like the slideshow of the large format photographs… now you know the possibilities, hint, hint. 😉

  • Ha! This is my first Semana Santa in Antigua, 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 😉 Greeeeeeeat photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Arturo, you are going to need another 500 GB hard drive for your Cuaresma and Semana Santa photos. :-))
