Getting to know Antigua
Today was a day of rest and relaxation, and becoming familiar with our home for the next two weeks. I tagged along with a few students for the day - Michelle Wyszomiriski, Paul Rotert, and Urvi Patel - as we explored the city on foot. The first photo is us with Antigua and Volcan Agua in the background, as seen from Cerro de la Cruz, a lookout point north of the city. We also saw some churches, art galleries, shops, and a chocolate museum/store with yummy samples. Parque Central, in the last photo, is just a block from our hotel. It's a popular community gathering place and is surrounded by historical architecture.
