Plaza Berlín

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

I  like the energy of this place. There’s a sense of comfort and joy. Children laughing, some playing, others learning how to ride a bike; romantic couples and families getting their “atol de elote”.  According to Municipality of Guatemala, Plaza Berlín is intended to be a viewpoint to admire the volcanoes and Lago de Amatitlán. There are also three pieces of former Berlin Wall brought from the Embassy of Germany, it represents the end of division in a country full of difficult history. Guatemala needs to break some walls too, the ones that keeps them separated from real development for everybody.
