Our 1st stop in Guatemala

To help us adjust to our new home, we planned our first stop in Guatemala to be Antigua. The old capital of Guatemala, Antigua is a colonial town that is home to many language schools, cathedrals, markets and muchas touristicas! It was definitely a good way for us to become accustomed to the lifestyle. We spent most of our time walking around town on the cobblestone streets, browsing markets, and dodging rain storms.

This arch was used to allow nuns to cross the street without being seen.

Learning about the art of Mayan textiles.

Browsing the fresh produce in the busy market.
