Arrive Antigua and meet Don at La Sin Venturas Hotel selected for it's ample parking garage, formerly an indoor theatre (note curtain in background.) First stop to the garage to pay a visit the White Wonder!
This woman is frying up chicken and french fries in the middle of the clothing section of the market.
We head to a local courtyard restaurant, La Fonda de Calle Real, where we find our favorite Guatemalan beer, Moza, their famous slogan "Cerveza Obscura."

Don looking like the intrepid tourist on the street called "Los Arcos" named for the arch over the street, reportedly built for the nuns to cross the street unseen between the two convents. Ironic that this street is now lined with rockin' bars
This is gigantic store selling local Guatemalan handicrafts, offering everything from coffee to hand woven fabrics, all the way down to Joe's favorite bird eggs
This was Don's favorite spot in Antigua -- half barber shop, half internet cafe. Get a trim while waiting for photos to download!
Self-timed photo from the hotel rooftop of the view of the famous landmark in Antigua to the South, Aqua Volcano, over 12,000 ft high always making navigation in the city easy (at least on a clear day!)
Don test-drives the lounge chairs on the rooftop of our hotel.
