On my way to La Bodegona to get some red wine for the new year celebrations of 2011, I noticed that the streets were crowded. Like always, La Antigua Guatemala is the place to be for a great celebration; there was music all over, even the mime was present on Calle del Arco. Of course, there were other festive activities, I just managed to snap some shots.
Afterwards, my friends and I went to Casa Herrera as other friends were waiting for us there. While at Casa Herrera, we were lucky to witness Volcán de Fuego showing off against an amazing sunset. Also, although I forgot my tripod, I managed to take a photo of the world famous Arco de Santa Catalina all the way from Casa Herrera.
Later on, we went to different bars, like JP’s Rumbar, The Ocelot and Angie’s Angie. We all just wanted to start 2011 in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
Unfortunately, this year I didn’t get to photograph the fireworks because it was just too crowded that I didn’t get a chance. Nevertheless, here are some of the photos to welcome 2011.
My best wishes for a happy new 2011!
