After a very late arrival in Guatemala City and a transfer to our hotel in Antigua, I was ready to get some rest before an early morning of birding the next day. Since it was dark when we arrived, we didn't see much of the town but it was clear the next morning that this was a special place. As we walked a few blocks to our van, we were in awe of the wonderful architecture in the old town.
|Walking along the streets of Antigua.|
|This Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl was very active in the area we birded on the first morning.|
|Iglesia La Merced had amazingly intricate designs on the building.|
|These works of art are made from flowers and will then be walked over by the parade.|
|This huge "float" was carried by dozens of people though the streets.|
