Paseo Cayalá

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Paseo Cayalá is the Center of a luxury Private/Gated community, Ciudad Cayalá they call it, more than 100 acres in size.
Exquisite architecture with a great variety of fine restaurants and luxury shops, a must stop if you are around Guatemala City. Just don’t go there during holiday season or you might have to stay on a car line for more than an hour to enter the parking lot.
I’ll share more of Ciudad Cayalá soon. Stay Tuned.

I am very impressed by the exquisite Architecture and Decor implemented by international chain restaurants, way surpassing their country of origin. This is at a T Bell, and there is a completely free to use soccer table. (!)

Guatemala… a mixture of many things: people, culture, landscapes, beliefes and architecture. There are some parts in the city in wich you can still find some old houses with the bauhau architecture. This with a full moon covered by clouds, make a unique and different picture from Guatemala.

The last speech

Monday, April 18th, 2011

The President of Guatemala in 1954, Jacobo Arbenz, gave his last speech after being overthrown with the support of the United States government. After finishing his speech Arbenz said that he was leaving for the border after renouncing the presidency.

What Arbenz meant was to he would take refuge in the Mexican Embassy, which at that time it was located just across the street from the National Palace in zona 1, the building you see in the photograph.
