More Photographs from Chichicastenango, Guatemala

Here are some more photos from Guatemala. Most of them are from market day in Chichicastenango, but a few from Antigua are mixed in. Visit my blog for more adventures in Guatemala: Lady the Tramp Travel Blog

Photo of me eating an ice cream. These are my favorite things in the whole wide world to eat. This one is strawberries and cream. If you are in Guatemala, definitely find these ice creams and eat them....usually just follow the school children to the source.

There is a huge beautiful catholic church in Chichicastenango. It was built on Sacred Mayan ground, so the Mayans and people from Guatemala visit this church. Here is a woman selling flowers outside of the church.

Photos of corn, corn, and more types of corn than you could ever imagine. This corn is bought in bulk and then ground up using a metate to make cornmeal. The cornmeal is then mixed with water to make the staple food: tortillas.
