2010 November - Nov. 1 - Day of the Dead

On our way to the village of Santiago Sacatepequez
to celebrate, the Day of the Dead, a Mayan tradition

Mayan folkart

Flying kites is an important part of the holiday -
kites send prayers and loving thoughts to ancestors

In the cemeteries - graves are decorated with flowers
and families gather to honor their dearly departed

Assembling large kites
