Guatemala City’s Periferico Aerial View

This wonderful and rare shot of Guatemala City’s only freeway and main artery was taken by Fernando Reyes Palencia from a small plain as he was coming back from Huehuetenango.

El Periférico (peripheral) was supposed to be the outer ring highway surrounding Guatemala City and perhaps it was at the time it was built. Nowadays, Circuito Interior (interior ring) might be a much proper name since Guatemala City has grown many times outside the Periférico freeway.

What do you think would be a better name of the Periférico now?
