Photo of the Day (6.26.09)

I’m gearing up for a first-time trip to Guatemala, so I thought I’d post this photo from Rambling Traveler taken in the cemetery of Chichicastenango, or “Chichi” for short.
I’ve always loved the colorfulness of Latin American cemeteries, and the fact that they’re usually so well-tended and frequently visited. These cemeteries prove, more than anywhere else, that cemeteries aren’t for the dead; they’re for the living.
