Guatemala Dia de Indepencia
Part of travel is immersing yourself in the local culture and celebrating with the people. Today we had the awesome opportunity to witness a Guatemalan Independence Day celebration. Parades, food, marching bands, fireworks and a ride on the camioneta (chicken bus) all came together for a magical day. People were wearing their tipico (traditional clothing) and Gautemala flags were flying everywhere. The people love their country and are proud to be Guatemalateca!
