Our stay at Casa Las Canchitas was a memorable one. With the price we paid the place was beyond our expectation. The hosts were geniunely friendly. They are expats from Ontario Canada with a very cute daughter. The room was big with big comfy bed. The breakfast was great with fresh fruits and juice, eggs, beans, bread and good coffee. The nicest thing was the rooftop terrace which overlooks the surrounding neighbourhood and the faraway mountains. With a slight breeze and warmth of the sun, I could stay there all day, read a book and just relax.
The climax of our trip was in the morning of Good Friday when we got woken up by distant sound and music. We found out that a procession was passing right by our street. We quickly dressed and stood by the front entrance. There we watched the procession for half an hour. Ladies dressed in black were carrying the alter of the crucifix slowly making their way down the street. They were followed by a band of musicians playing sombre music. The street was decorated by drawing apparently made out of sawdust dyed in different colors. Immediately after the procession, the city cleaning crew quickly swept away the sawdust with a plow and a big dumptruck!
All in all, it was a fantastic experience in Guatemala City. Until next time, we must go back soon!
