This is the week of anticipation to the Day of the Dead, November 1st and one of the most waited upon dishes of people in Guatemala City.

I have often compared the "1ero de Noviembre" to Thanksgiving in the sense of family thinking of ancestors around a wonderful meal.

I will blog more about the dish and the day but for now I leave you with the big display of the meats being sold for the fiambre, which a lot of them can only be found during this time.

Querida amiga... ya se me hace agua la boca con el fiambre...
También es el día de los barriletes gigantes y de fiesta en el cementerio.
Qué lindo post.
