Chichicastenango Market
Guatemala Tour

On our way to Lake Atitlan, we stopped for lunch and shopping in this amazing kaleidoscope of colors, smells, and sounds. There is SO much merchandise for sale!! My favorites, though, were the indoor produce market and the flower market on the stairs of a white church. In front of the church there were two old men doing a benediction with incense - I caught one of them with my camera, as you can see in my gallery. After a hike up the mountain, we witnessed a Mayan ritual, including a large fire and the sacrifice of a chicken (photo). VERY interesting!!
