Antigua

While traveling in between Honduras & Lake Atitlan, Guatemala…we happened to find ourselves visiting Antigua twice.  Simply walking through the cobblestones streets is an adventure, as there is always something happening around every corner to engage your attention.  We enjoyed an amazing meal with friends on a nearby mountainside at the lovely organic farm to table restaurant Cerro San Cristobal , slurped up all the cacao we could at the very welcoming Choco Museo , and enjoyed incredible café at too many places to list.  It’s unnecessary  to say that Antigua has some really great restaurants, but there it is.  However, one of our favorite explorations was visiting the museums at the beautiful convent of  Casa Santo Domingo . There is a gorgeous museo built around the monastery ruins that houses pre-columbian Maya art along side modern day glass interpretations.  The connecting of artistic works was surprisingly breathtaking, which kind of expresses Antigua perfectly…multiple worlds interwoven together in a colorful and timeless vibration of life.

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.
