Kites of Sumpango

Small town near Guatemala City and Antigua lives for the Festival of gigantic kites. This tradition exists in some parts of Guatemala for a long time now. To be there on Day of the dead is quite a unique experience...

Idea to make gigantic kite, more than twenty meters in diameter that will never fly may sound crazy. But, when you come to the festival, it seems so logical and nice; colors, pictures and messages that can be seen on every single one of the kites exhibited here create…

by Maryann Virack         


My dad’s summer visits to California have often forced us to join in the “traipse of the tourists” visiting every theme park and attraction, including casinos, within driving distance.  Some have been extraordinary adventures; others much more ordinary.
