Sunday to race pigeons by José Moreno

It is normal for many Sundays visiting Central Park, maybe after a breakfast, Mass or just out for a while with their children, and almost always lead specifically to this part of the park why? here because they feed the pigeons and the children enjoy running around them.

Food Feria by Luna McCarthy

This weekend there was a food fair in Parque Central…with live music, lots of amazing vendors and home made products to buy. So many things were available to taste and to buy, from pastries to home made bread to grilled chicken sandwiches to nuts. I must say, I left the park today with a VERY happy belly.

Santa by Luna McCarthy

The Christmas Parade was last night and although I was working still, I managed to sneak outside for a few shots. The parade started in Parque Central and continued all the way to the Minerva Terminal area. I can’t imagine how cold and tired some of the marchers must have been by the end of the night! There was Christmas music and Santa Claus, the police were handing out candy to the children and there were too many marching bands to count. The Christmas season is officially upon Xela!

Grand Inside by Jose Moreno

When one takes the opportunity to look up, one can find the most beautiful sight waiting to be seen. This is the ceiling of the grand cathedral, which many a faithful follower looks to during the humblest of prayers.

Robles Church by Luna McCarthy

This church is located out near the Hospital Robles. The colors and the funky architecture stopped me in my tracks. Xela is certainly full of beautiful and historic buildings, but true diversity comes not just from different religions, but different kinds of churches too.

Water Testing

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Dr. Mark Arneson demonstrates the way he tests water for his work here in Guatemala with “Agua Potable, Analisis y Tratamiento” The water tested in this photo had a chlorine level of .24 which means it was safe to drink, but Im still unsure if I would go take a swig of water from a tap.
