Just got back from another incredible trip down to Antigua for Semana Santas. Our son lives in Antigua and owns what we think is an outstanding restaurant named Sangre, located between the Arch and La Merced. This was our first opportunity to witness the spectacle of the alfombras, and the processiones.
It was breathtaking. We have now been down three times and each time we go we find it harder to leave.
For such a small town with such a small population it amazes us how much there is to see and do. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures from this trip.

We were in Antigua in June and happened to stop at a new and exciting restaurant called Sangre. It was just a few doors down from the Arch heading towards the yellow cathedral. We had a fantastic meal and the service was great. It was a very intriguing space with art and beautiful interiors. We sat outside under the deck and watched the sunset. The wine list is outstanding and the prices were reasonable. We go to Guatemala at least twice a year and plan to make a stop at this restaurant again. We also had a wonderful meal at Panza Verde which we always love to go to. We had the opportunity to see the " The Buena Vista Social Club' play there. Apparently they have retired to Antigua which is Cuba's loss but Guatemala's gain.
