This was the first trip that I had use of Instagram. Let me say: Genius and I know why Instagram posts and ravings have popped up everywhere recently. As for any Twitter followers, I’m sure you’ve already realized how much I am loving this app. You’ve had to suffer through numerous pictures of drinks, dogs and architecture. More importantly, most of my photos from Anitgua, Guatemala were taken with Instagram.
We finished the field school in Antigua, as to allow for decompression time, and a little mental relaxation after the “Trauma Tour”. Here are some of my favourite shots from Instagram in Antigua.
This is the best drink ever. Te Frio Limon (Lemon Ice Tea) from Cafe Rainbow. Recommended. I practically lived at Cafe Rainbow for a week, largely because of this drink and the excellent WIFI.
Cafe Condesa is located right off the Parque Central in the Main Square. All the old house in Antigua had a central courtyard. They’ve converted this old house into the Cafe but left the courtyard intact, making for one of the best places to have breakfast or lunch.
The inside of Caffe Bourbon, located between the Arch and the Parque Central. Favourite proper restaurant in Antigua. It’s a jazz bar/restaurant/WIFI zone of awesomeness.
This is what every street looks like in Antigua. This is why it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This couple hundred year old ruined cathedral was just at the end of my street. It was beautiful in its ruin, and completely under-appreciated. But when there is a church like this on every block, it’s hard to take note of every one.
One of the buildings of the Parque Central. There were always musicians, markets and teenage lovers under the arches.
And here is the finale. El Arco. That quintessential Antigua and Guatemala shot.
