Palm Sunday

Although I visited Guatemala and Honduras multiple times as a child I have never had the privilege of seeing firsthand the incredible dyed sawdust carpets of Semana Santa, holy week.  These are temporary works of art, forming a carpet for the parades and processionals that take place throughout the week leading up to Easter.  The first photo is from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, the rest are from Guatemala.  Aren’t they magnificent?
