I took Jenny and David around Guatemala ... in front of the cathedral, behind us, in the main square, they installed an open-air ice skating ring.  Guatemalan kids are not good skaters, but they love to skate!  Click for an even larger image.

There was a large Christmas market ... but, of course, at Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is very sunny in Guatemala ... Springtime year-round.  Then it would start to snow ... see a little below

... before Sasha left Antigua for Germany, after Christmas, we went to see "Madama Butterfly" on a giant screen at Peter Meyer's home.  On arrival, the snow was falling and a fire was crackling in the corner.  Click for a larger image.

Thank you, Peter!  He said snow would be falling in Antigua ... and it was!
