Semana Santa (Holy Week)

I'm in Panajachel in early April for Semana Santa (Holy Week) with incredible processions and carpeted streets with flowers, seeds, fruit, colored sawdust and all kinds of things. I'm not big on the recreation of the Crucifixion, but the carpets are beautiful. See some photos on flickr and the Atitlan blog below. Back to NC in ten days. Would that I was getting paid for all this travel! At least I'm (finally) having fun. LOL. Hope you are too!
