A much needed light right arrived on the afternoon of Thursday in and around Antigua Guatemala. Hopefully, enough to wash away all the ash we have been getting from volcano Fuego.
Now, we know Calle del Arco, actually 5a avenida norte, is a pedestrian street on the weekends, right? So, how come the street was closed to vehicular traffic on a Thursday? Simple, because a foreign dignitary was visiting Antigua Guatemala and they closed the street for easier sight-seeing. I asked who it was to one of the traffic police agents, and I was told it was the ambassador of Turkey, but I have no confirmation of that thus far.
