A Day Full of News from Antigua Guatemala

Fuego volcano erupting in Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Giron

Today was the day. Today Fuego Volcano stole the spot lights with the largest pyroclastic activity seen in recent times. The arrest of Antigua Guatemala’s Mayor and ten other people accused of corruption and taking public funds took a second stage. On the other hand, the Antorchas de la Independencia, Independence Torches continue arriving and leaving Antigua Guatemala with the Independence flame. There were also civics acts in Parque Central along a fashion and design show. Last but not least, Bohemia Suburbana, one of Guatemala’s most popular rock bands, reunited after 12-year separation for a concert in the Ermita de la Santa Cruz.

Un día lleno de noticias en La Antigua Guatemala. La noticia mas llamativa fue sin duda que el Volcán de Fuego ya que se robó toda la atención y el arresto del alcalde Adolfo Vivar pasó casi desapercibido. Otras noticias del día fueron que las antorchas de la Independencia siguieron llegando a La Antigua Guatemala y saliendo en maratones con la llama de la Independencia. También hubo un desfile de modas y diseño en el Parque Central y otros actos cívicos. Por último, en la noche Bohemia Suburbana tendrá un concierto de reunión después de 12 años de separación en La Ermita de La Santa Cruz.

Here’s a time-lapsed video created by Nelo Mijangos.

Here’s the sequence of photographs I took around 10:15am.

And here’s the series of photos I took about the Ministerio Público, MP, the General Attorney officers collecting computer evidence.

And short fragment of Guatemala’s National Anthem.

Last, the designer girls and their models ready to begin their fashion show in Parque Central.
