An Excuse For Pics

Dia de Guadalupe is a Catholic holiday in Guatemala where folks gather to honor the Guadelupe.  In Quetzaltenango, the result of this celebration is a whole bunch of people in the Central Park pressuring their children to get all dressed up and take pictures in front of baby animals and scary figurines.  On the whole, it's not unlike our fettish for finding some stranger dressed up like Kris Kringle at the local shopping mall and paying a few bucks to plop our screaming kids on his lap while we snap a quick pic.  Still, the kids are pretty darn cute.  Besides, if you play your cards right, you can sneak some pics of your own without having to pay the professional photographers.  (Should missionaries be doing that?  The Good Lord only knows.)
