tired kids at Guatemala’s independence parade

The story behind "tired kids at Guatemala’s independence parade"

In Quetzaltenango (also known as Xela), a few kids are getting bored. The yearly independence parade includes many colourful musical bands, women in traditional clothes and all kinds of groups from schools, universities and social institutes.

As often in places like Guatemala, the spectators are at least as interesting as the actual parade.

It is a wonderful display of culture, though if you are only a few years old, it could have been a bit shorter than the couple of hours it takes for all to pass :)
