Belated Independence Day Photos

Every September 15th, Guatemala celebrates its independence from Spain won in 1821. Festivities last almost the entire week leading up to the day, and events include parades, LOTS of school bands, lots of blue and white flying flags, antorchas (torch runs), and more.

Unfortunately, antorchas nationwide were canceled this year (including ours) after the government declared the country still in a state of disaster from this season's rain and mudslides, but don't worry, the party kept right on going with bands, bands, and more bands.

So, check out the photos of the NPH school's very own banda.
