Day of The Dead Celebration - Sumpango, Guatemala

17 November 2018
This is one of the last adventures for us while in Guatemala. The kite festival celebrating the Day of The Dead, our Halloween.

The kites are believed to be a way of speaking with the souls of the dead. The flying kites are representative of the flowing spirits of the dead. Creating these beautiful kites may require a year in the planning, design and construction, made from tissue paper with bamboo reeds as the supporting structure. Some are as large as 20 to 50 feet wide and more than 50 feet tall. The largest kites are for display only and competition between families is intense.

About:
Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
