Matt Wicks: Guatemala Independence day, traditionally dressed kids

Guatemala now celebrates its independence for about two weeks straight. It’s a big deal.

I was in Quetzaltenango (Xela), Guatemala for the duration, and witnessed celebrations of Guatemala’s independence with a seemingly endless supply of children’s parades, brass bands, traditional dress, street food, beauty pageants, heavy boozing, concerts, dancing and thrill rides.
