Antigua’s Cathedral and Volcán de Agua

Cathedral and Volcán de Agua

This photo is for the benefit of Lessie and others who have commented about the mountains in the background in some of the recent photos. Actually, the mountain is Volcán de Agua or Water Volcano and it can be seen on many of the photos that have south perspective. Volcán de Agua towers 3,760 meters above the sea level to the South of La Antigua Guatemala.

One of these days I will get around to tell you the story behind Volcán de Agua and Volcán de Fuego, which are somehow involved with the genesis of the world. The name of the Water volcano in Maya is Hunapú.

This photo is also dedicated to all the people who are in need of a little sunshine. We are in the middle of winter now, but temperatures are around mid 20°C/70°F. To me, this is the best time of the year in Guatemala.
