Nylon becomes ubiquituos in Guatemala during the rainy season. Nylon is quite possibly the cheapest protection one can buy against the rain. You can even find nylon capes everywhere. The picture above was taken at El Carmen handicraft outdoor market which appears like magic on the weekends on the street in front of El Carmen ruins.

I think this piece of architecture is absolutely gorgeous. Especially with those sellers and colorful textile products from Mercado De Artesanos El Carmen in front of it, it looks more lively. Next time i visit La Antigua Guatemala, I will try to get some more background information about this building.

XelaDailyPhoto Aside: We have good news for you. Since Pinar is living in Xela (short for Xelajú or Quetzaltenango; pronounce like sheella) she has decided to launch the XelaDailyPhoto on November 1st to complement what AntiguaDailyPhoto is being doing for years and bring you a much richer and rounder picture of Guatemala. Pinar will delight us with daily post cards and stories from our sister republic of Xelajú. We wish her good luck and will provide the necessary support to make it a more enjoyable photographic tour through Los Altos.
