Semana Santa Continues

The craziness continues. Places that are usually close to empty during the week are full of customers. Valentino’s Steak House is a reasonable example of tourist-friendly restaurants on Calle Santander. It is sometimes fairly busy on weekends but it was full today.

Note that like many places called a steak house, they probably have steak but that is far from the norm. For me, it is usually a vegetarian burrito. Fish (which I have had there) and chicken are probably the most popular dishes.

What I see makes we wonder what percentage of a restaurant’s (on Calle Santander) business happens during Semana Santa. The same is true, of course, for the other vendors on the street.

As I said before, what is really different is that this is a Guatemala holiday. There are still the typical number of non-Guatemalans here but there is a serious invasion of people, mostly from Guatemala City.
