There’s a different type of firework in Guatemala. The kind that’s all talk and no show. The kind that wakes you up at 3a.m. to the sound of the Antigua streets. The carts on cobblestone and Semana Santa parades. It was magical to say the least, and loud. The parades are extravagant shows. The mountains surrounding the town billowing smoke to fuel the sunsets.
