After a tough week, Guatemala deserves a wonderful weekend to celebrate independence!
Fuego, a volcano about 50 kilometers outside of Guatemala City, has erupted this week more strongly than any other time in the past 30 years. According to the Prensa Libre, over 5000 people were evacuated (though Fox News says 10,000+). Most have already been able to return home.
Nevertheless, the Prensa notes that independence celebrations continue.
Happy Independence Day, mi querida Guatemala!
