It’s Raining in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: &emdash; It's Raining in Antigua Guatemala

I am not too sure this Guatemalan woman will be singing this popular song to bring on the rain, don’t you agree?

Que llueva, que llueva
Canción infantil

Que llueva, que llueva
La Virgen de la Cueva
Los pajaritos cantan,
Las nubes se levantan.
¡Que sí, que no,
que caiga un chaparrón!

Que siga lloviendo,
Los pájaros corriendo
Florezca la pradera
Al sol de la primavera.
¡Que sí, que no,
que llueva a chaparrón,
que no me moje yo!

Here’s the song thanks to our loyal reader Luis from SF.

Let It Rain, Let It Rain
Children’s Song

Let it rain, let it rain,
The Virgin of the Cave,
The little birds are singing,
The clouds are rising.
Oh yes, oh no,
Let a downpour fall!

Let it go on raining,
The birds go on running,
Let the meadow blossom
Under the spring sun.
Oh yes, oh no,
Let it rain cats and dogs,
Let me not get wet!

    Great photo Rudy. I love photographing interesting doors and windows that I stumble upon in my travels. Having his señora in the frame only adds to its charm.

    I am not sure that she will be singing the song, either…but I bet I have shared a patch of dry space in a doorway with this woman before !
