Photographer's Note

Another picture from my deep archive. I am not sure where this photo was taken, probably in Chichicastenango. Just the street scene. What a pity that in 2001 I had no digital camera. I have only very few pictures of rather poor quality. I used a video camera at that time. And I saw such amazing landscapes, many volcanos, lakes, ruins, people. Guatemala Antigua is one of the loveliest cities I have ever been.
In Workshop a picture of Pacaya volcano. I climbed to the top of the crater, the volcano is all the time active and in the evening the red glow can be seen. Pacaya rises to an elevation of 2,552 metres After being dormant for over 70 years, it began erupting vigorously in 1961 and has been erupting frequently since then. I have heard that later such a trip was dangerous, the tourists were robbed and even killed.

The next day I missed my plane from Guatemala City to Warsaw. The return home was the craziest up to my adventure in March this year.
