Summary
  • The Lau family travels to Antigua, Guatemala, to visit their cousins during the Holy Week of Easter. Although the Laus are Chinese and Buddhist, they enjoy the processions walking through the city. They also enjoy the elaborate carpets made of colored sawdust that line the streets, but the heroine doesn't understand why the carpets are made, only to be destroyed
  • Sumario en español: Han invitado a la familia Lau a pasar la Semana Santa con los primos en La Antigua, Guatemala. La familia es china y budista, pero aun así a mami le conmueve el magnífico espectáculo de las procesiones de la Semana Santa. Uno de los aspectos más originales de la Semana Santa en Antigua es la creación de alfombras de aserrín sobre el trayecto de las procesiones. La niña fabrica su propia alfombra con la ayuda de sus primos y hermanos. Se sorprende al darse cuenta de que la procesión va a destruir la alfombra, y en desesperación se para frente a ella para tratar de impedir su paso
