Antigua, Guatemala

I finally get to share one last post from my time in Guatemala;
in case you missed the others read here, here and here!
On the last day of the trip, we visited the colonial city of Antigua
[about an hour's drive from Guatemala City].

The city is very quaint with cobble stone streets, 
 brightly painted buildings & earthquake ruins.  
There were a lot of tourists & many markets to shop.
We walked around the city to explore & do some shopping.
The photo below was taken in the town square.
The archway to Le Merced Church at night.
Sadly, I didn't get a photo of the many markets we visited 
and haggled for blankets, bags, clothing, jewelry & more.
But we did see street vendors setting up in the morning.
We enjoyed delicious coffee [& I brought some home]
...the archway is behind us, see it?
Annette even got her name on hers!
Our hotel was also beautiful; view from the balcony.
Courtyard of the hotel where we ate breakfast.

Antigua was such a beautiful city and it was sad 
to spend less than 24 hours there.  I hope to return one day!
