Gaby Moreno @Parque Central Guatemala - por Hugo Murales

Latin Grammy winner Gaby Moreno performed yesterday in a cold night in the middle of Parque Central. We had very little Blues or Soul tunes in the concert, she was here promoting her most recent production “Posadas”, a Christmas Album.

“She’s my sister!” she said introducing one of the musicians in the band. That’s when you knew she was feeling home. It was a fun night.

In a country under such conditions, a lot of the appliances and electronics not approved for the final consumer in the developed world end up on out retail stores.
The bottoms on your ranger may heat up to more than 100º F. Not apt for the developed world, not a problem, sell it in one of those developing countries.
