Chichicastenango is a large market a few hours outside of Antigua. It's held every Thursday and Sunday, and a slew of vendors take over the town, selling everything from tourist trinkets to tools to soap to live chickens. I managed to come away buying just one thing: a small blue weaving. I had wanted a big long one to match a table runner I bought in India. But I never found one I really liked. I'm rather particular. And I almost bought a giant wool blanket but didn't want to carry the extra weight. I don't buy a lot of souvenirs...
