Chichicastenango, Guatemala, 1963 versus 2008


From my 2008 bus trip from San Diego to Guatemala. It was a bit more crowded. 20 buses carrying tourists were parked behind the church. I watched a funeral procession slowly carry a casket with a small child inside through the market. The church sat on the ruins of a Mayan temple, and exuded a mysterious, ancient vibe. Notice the smoke on the steps, just like in the video.

1992 looked more like 2008 (barely) than 1963, but they're all remarkably similar! Ah, Chichi...
you musta spent some time at the Lake too, no? Panajachel, aka Gringolandia!
