Revue Magazine April 2022
Semana Santa is back. Like so many other celebrations and events, Holy Week has not had Processions, Alfombras (carpets), Holy Masses or Holy Vigils for the past two years. Starting on Palm Sunday, April 10, the pageantry, beauty, and beloved ceremonies revive these sacred traditions. We have provided information and route maps for five of the major processions in Antigua. Masks are still recommended for spectators and please be careful in large crowds.
The Photo Contest theme for this month was Guatemala in Black & White and we received many great entries, all of which you can admire in this edition. The Revue Photo Portfolio features black & white photo of Semana Santa by Sergio Delattre.
Author and Revue contributing writer Mark Walker talks of Time Among the Maya; Travels in Belize, Guatemala and Mexico, Personal Reflections. Walker discusses the writings of Ronald Wright, including his ability to pinpoint some of the critical issues impacting Central America.
We hope you enjoy this month’s offerings and that you have a wonderful time experiencing the incredible phenomenon that is Semana Santa in Antigua.
