This weekend was hectic in Xela. Half-marathon on Saturday, full-marathon on Sunday… So I pretty much spent the whole Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning with walking around the city and photographing.

On Saturday, while my friend, Brendan and I were chilling at the central park, we decided to enter the city hall, where they were registering the runners and distributing material to them. We came across these mascots, dressing up. I think it was hilarious how serious they looked in those costumes.

Inside the city hall, there were these screens where you could actually follow the full marathon route. Pretty cool!

And Paula was one of the dancers in La Patria Band. I find those high school bands fascinating. Some of them are really good. I have been obsessively photographing them since this past summer.
