Vista Hermosa Boulevard and The Social Dynamics

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

It’s both curious and sad how Guatemala City works. How everybody moves through it, and how they react to it. Three hundred thousand people use this main boulevad at zona 15 every day.  It’s caos if you’ll ask me.

Not everyone that makes use of it lives in the area, theres a great deal of people that come here early in the morning in a crappy public trasnsport system, for eight hours of work five days a week (the lucky ones) and they leave by the end of the daylight.

Moving around the city four hours a day to work eight, doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.  Hell, that’s not healthy, it’s insane.

I just read that one of every four guatemalan citizens has some kind of mental disorder.  I wonder why…

Here you have the one called “Juntos por la Cura” and also another picture of Avon campaign in Malls to create awareness and encourage women to practice regularly a breast self examination.
