4:30 depart for Roberto Colmenares’ (Rotarian-orthodontist) home.
5:00 walk to nearby park for “Quema del Diablo” celebration which began at 6:00 p.m., then walk back to Roberto’s home for dinner.
The celebration is very simple. Is the beggining of the Holiday season in Guatemala. People in the city, get together for a burning of the bad things that happendeon the year and take a clean start to whats about to happen at the end of the year.
People get together as a community to have traditional foods and drinks, to burn "the devil" (The celebration is called quema del diablo) and to burn firecrackers. Is the only time (at least in my neighborhood) that people meet people and celebrate a tradition.
This year I will also invite Rudy and Pay for this event. It will take place at 6:00 in the afternoon, in the park near my house, that is about 15 minutes from the center of the city.
There you will have the posibility to drink hot cocoa, atol de elote, horchata and jamaica drinks, and try the tamal, tostadas, chuchitos and other national foods and drinks.
I am sure it will be a different and enjoyable occasion.
