Victor practices skateboarding everyday. He told me he’s preparing for a big event this Sunday. I can see the enthusiasm in his eyes. Skateboarding in Guatemala is a community of young people with a lot of creativity and energy. There are some skateparks (There’s one in Zone 11 and I’ve seen them practice in Av. Las Américas) but It took my attention to see them in San Pedrito park. this park is in Zone 5 a bit small, surrounded by traffic and houses but once you are there you are able to enjoy the flowers, sit in the benches, and feel it is a pleasant place for residents and visitors. Nearby there’s a police station and a church.
