Posadas

Posadas by José Moreno

 

Las Posadas, a celebration held by the Catholic Church, held before Christmas and almost always go from 16 to 24 December, which recreated the journey of the Holy Family from Galilee to Bethlehem.

In Quetzaltenango the same way these traditions are celebrated with lights, whistles and tortoise shells, entering and leaving nine houses there for one night the Holy Family.

Sadly only had my cell phone camera.

En Quetzaltenango de la misma forma se celebran estas tradiciones con Faroles, pitos y caparazones de tortugas, entrando en nueve casas y dejando alli por una noche la Sagrada Familia.

Lastimosamente solo tenía la cámara de mi celular.

A New Angle

My apologies, I am not sure quite what happened…I posted for Thursday and Friday and came online this morning to see that NOTHING had been posted. Sorry faithful readers 🙁

I particularly love this shot by guest contributor Jose Moreno and the unusual angle from which it was shot. Can anyone guess where this photo was taken from? Jose, don’t give it away too quickly!

I quite like this angle of the Cathedral {shot taken by guest contributor Jose Moreno}…and I am trying to figure out where it was taken from. Jose, don’t tell us quite yet…does anyone have any guesses where this was shot from?

I love this photo for two reasons. One is that it’s a great shot of a not-often taken angle of the Central Park area. The other reason is that it’s yet another shot of the amazing, fabulous, blue skies of my home, Xela. Awww, all warm and fuzzy.
