One thing I know for sure, there will be Holy Week celebrations in Antigua Guatemala for a long while. These traditions are being perpetuated with the very young and pride and identity of these customs are being held very high. The picture above of students of tourism was taken at the end of their creation of two dyed saw-dust carpets. The students were responsible for every aspect of the alfombras, carpets, from the design to the final touches and were merely guided by one of their teachers.
Oh there is nothing like the honest smiles of pride and success in these faces, don’t you agree?
