Day 5 Solola and Panajachel

We left Antigua today for Lake Atitlan, stopping on the way in the old Antigua, the original capital of Guatemala established by the conquistdore family Alvarez.

On the way to visiting the church we passed a small preschool where women were preparing to paint a wall by tracing on it a projected image. Cartoon characters, very big in Guatemala, are everywhere: on billboards, ads and murals.wpid-Photo-20150331070828943.jpg

The church, beautifully white-washed, contains a surprise.
