Guard at Calle del Arco

Guard at Calle del Arco

Even though Guatemala’s Independence is celebrated on September 15th and the days prior to that date, in reality Guatemala’s independence is observe throughout September with flags and civic acts in schools.

As you can see in the picture above, flags hang from many windows and balconies at Calle del Arco. You can also look for the omnipresent chucho and the eternal bank queues around Antigua Guatemala’s Main Square.
