Independence in Guatemala is a couple week long celebration. Last year I blogged about my trip to the fair and the grito that was celebrated Independence eve. This year I made it back to the fair twice, but instead of staying in Xela for Independence weekend I treked all the way to Rio Dulce, which is located close to the Caribbean. Both the fair and Rio Dulce were amazing and I figured I would share a few of my pictures with you all. I hope you enjoy. The first video I’m posting is of a ride that I tried to describe in last year’s blog. It’s nothing but insanity. I didn’t ride it this year. After a week of stalling on the blog so I could make the video work,sadly it will not post. I will continue to work on the videos so you all will need to keep checking this blog. Trust me this ride is sick. So you know what you are missing from the video just picture a spinning wheel of death, no seat belts, and violent tremors. Okay, now for the pictures. The above is a shot of the Ferris Wheel of death that Guatemalan’s love to ride while they’re at the fair. It’s powered by an old tractor and a foot pedal. Okay, you get the picture, now here are some my photo’s from Rio Dulce and the Fair. It was a great time and I hope you enjoy the photos.
