PHOTO: 12 Guatemalan Piggies go to Market

If you're ever in Guatemala be sure to visit the colourful market in the old town of Chichicastenango, where beautifully dressed local women from the surrounding hills sell flowers on the steep steps of a chalk white church and market traders sell handicrafts, textiles and exotic fruit, vegetables and steaming cooking pots of food around every corner. The market is held every Sunday and Thursday and will leave you carrying a very heavy bag for the remainder of your trip.
