I love Gualán

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

I love Gualan, she says... I wonder who she is?

Believe it or not, when I took this photo with the iPhone of Beatriz del Cid I didn’t know who she was or that she was a popular and sort of famous radio dj in Guatemala City. Neither did I know that she had been one of the major character in the recent film Aquí me quedo; which you can watch here. The only reason I decided to take the photo was because I liked the t-shirt with the big I love Gualán, a small town which I don’t think I have ever visited. That’s something I need to fix as well as take better portrait photos of beautiful Beatriz del Cid.

Gualán is a small city located in the department of Zacapa in the country of Guatemala. It is located in the Eastern part of the country about 165 Kilometers from Guatemala City on route CA-9. People in Gualán grow tomato, sugar cane, fish, coffee, and as with the whole of Zacapa department, has a considerable amount of manufacturing industry (although dirty industry is present as well), mainly regional companies providing services and products targeted towards local customs.
