Video: The Sawdust and Floral Carpets of Antigua

Add caption
During the Church season of Lent (Ash Wednesday-Easter Day), carpets made of colored sawdust as well as plant materials are made in the streets and churches of Antigua Guatemala, as well as in other locales in the Latin American world.   This video takes you on a tour of these carpets the morning of Good Friday when many, many carpets are made to honor the religious processions that will take place.

Be watching this blog for a post about these carpets, as well.
