The picture above shows two ladies taking their respective portraits in one of the lake decks at Atitlán. After capturing this moment, I was left thinking on why do we take pictures, and it was inevitable to think of time as the answer, like expressed in the song attached to this posts.

“The clock may not mean much to rabbits and owls”

Anyways, the clock, means -and much- to Guatemala this year:

The Guatemalan Government reports positive progress regarding several issues in the country in its most recent annual report to which, relatively well informed people, qualify fake and insulting.

On the bright side, this week Guatemala City starts officially as Ibero-American Capital of Culture 2015, a title given in previous years to cities like Bogotá and Montevideo. You can check the ongoing cultural agenda that this distinction brings to the city.

Oh, look what I found!

This is what you can get for less than $4 U.S. Dollars, plus $2 for a bottled beer at San Pedro La Laguna, on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Solola. And in fact, this restaurant has a great view of the lake. Too bad I don’t remember the name of the restaurant, but send me a message and I could give you directions.

Bon Appétit!
