We finish this first leg of the Guatemalan Portrait with a picture of the typical Guatemalan grandmother. In Guatemala is one of the strongest links between humans is the relationship between the grandparents and their grandchildren. Unfortunately, I lost my last grandparent a few years back. I will miss my abuelita (grandma) very much. I am reminded of her often when I see abuelitas as the one above.
Believe it or not, the world famous of Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala begins this Palm Sunday or Domingo de Ramos as we call it in Spanish. I haven’t shared too many Lenten images this year as I have preferred to focus on the people, but beginning tomorrow, we will be showing some of the typical Holy Week vistas from Antigua Guatemala. Stay tuned!
