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!
