Greetings from Antigua…wish you were here!

I fell in love with Antigua, clearly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I adored the cobblestone streets, brightly colored buildings, volcanoes and immaculate churches colored in whites and yellows. But most of all, I loved the ruins which remained intact behind the grand reconstructed churches. They offer a glimpse into Antigua’s dramatic past and the powerful force of mother nature.
