Antigua, Guatemala. The makers of an alfombra (carpet) provide a ladder from which admirers can get a better photo of the artists' handiwork.   An alfombra (carpet) of flowers and pine needles  decorates the street in advance of the passage of a procession during Holy Week, La Semana Santa.  The alfombra will be finished only a couple of hours before the passage of the procession, after which the remains will be quickly swept away by municipal street sweepers.
