Antigua, Guatemala

Antigua, Guatemala

After a intense / joyful / emotional / amazing week at Casa Aleluya, a couple days of R&R in Antiqua was in order.

Founded in 1543, Antigua, meaning "Ancient" was the third capital of Guatemala.   We stayed at the historic Don Rodrigo Hotel with it's beautiful courtyards and panorama rooftop view. 

Before dinner we met up with the men who had been working on a construction project all week in Uspantan and shared stories over Pizza and Lasagna!   Saturday we played "tourista" and visited the ruins of colonial churches, the Mayan marketplace and their Central Park.   We were even treated to a parade! After dinner at the Hotel we all gathered to celebrate and share our favorite moments of the week.    

On everyone's mind was going home... so we were up early Sunday morning to get loaded up on our busses.  We made our way to the airport and headed home to be greeted by our loved ones!
