Semana Santa Comfort Food: Garnachas

Semana Santa Comfort Food: Garnachas BY RUDY GIRON

Semana Santa in Antigua Guatemala offers so many comfort foods, such as garnachas, a street food originally from Xelajú [Quetzaltenango].

Today’s portrait shows a Honduran woman selling garnachas quetzaltecas [from Xela] in the village of San Felipe de Jesús as part of the velación [vigil] the day before Palm Sunday.

The world is on an excited state of migration; we need to embrace it and welcome all the people who are looking for a chance to have a better life.
