Day 5 Part 3 - Antigua scenes
We spent the afternoon in Antigua. Antigua is a smaller and much prettier
city than Guatemala City, with beautiful architectural details. In
contrast with Guatemala City, many tourists are visible here.
A girl selling miniature dolls in Antigua. The volcano is visible in the
I bought a few of these miniature doll refrigerator magnets from this girl,

An armed guard protects a soft drink delivery truck in Antigua. Even in Antigua,
which has a lower crime rate than Guatemala City, the guns were ubiquitous.
Another security guard returning to work. These pump-action, sawed-off shotguns seemed to be the main weapons of choice
for security guards. They can be maneuvered quickly in confined spaces and
their shots cover a wide area.
Girls selling traditional wares and hand made souvenirs in Antigua.
