Day of the Dead kite festival     November 1st, the day after Halloween, brings the Guatemalan version of All Saints Day. The indigenous Mayans fly kites into the heavens, carrying messages for their dead ancestors. It is an all day party, and much more fun than eating too much candy. You can see photos of one of the world´s most original kite festivals. Enjoy the show.
