    Chichicastenango

    March 24 in Guatemala ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Town in Guatemala with what is said to be the largest indigenous market in Central America. I can believe it.
    First, a bit about the name of the town. Tenango means place of or land of. Chichi is poison ivy. It seems that this region has a lot of the plant that the indigenous people used to coat their weapons against enemies.
    ISTM likely that a market for that compound began here and developed into what it has become.
    The pics are random shots around the town and churches
