Coffee Shops With High Ceilings

Una Tarde en Café León por Hugo Muralles

High ceiling coffee shops should be my next photographic hunt, don’t you think? Also, I’m a fan of low light places like the one in the picture, that is Café León, located at zona 1. If you want to know where’s located go to the previous review of this place.  As the afternoon progress, the place gets more people accompanied by a book or friends catching up.

In this kind of buildings, I think I’ll always enjoy to zone out thinking about the original building, the first inhabitants and the sumptuous life they had. Most of them politicians or the first tradesmen that the city came to know.

With almost 100 years old, La Concha Acústica located in the center of the city remains as a faithful witness of hundreds of bands and other artistic groups who offer their art for free to all the capitalinos, thirsty as we are, of these cultural activities.

The custom for many Guatemalans, is to reach Plaza de la Constitución and find this peculiars carts of peoples that sells pictures  were they include hat, sunglasses, mirror  and comb to make your style more sophisticated then you choose were you want the photo and you just pose for the camera and wait for you picture.

Theatre in Middle of the Street

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

The Historic Center Festival continues; so far so good. Today the group of artists that you already know presented their work in the open street, a show that is worth.

The atmosphere of this time presents other difficulties, the attention of many people have more tests. Vehicles and sirens on this occasion were not recorded, gave a different flavor. But the public was always very attentive and at the end of the presentation was grateful for the work.


El Festival del Centro Histórico continúa y hasta el momento va bien. El día de hoy el grupo Artistas Trabajando presentó su obra teatral en el medio de la calle, frente al conservatorio. Una experiencia que demostró tener un valor adicional.

El ambiente en esta oportunidad tenía algunas trampas más, la atención de los asistentes estaba puesta a prueba, los sonidos de los automóviles y las sirenas ya no eran grabados. Aún así, el público mostró mucho interés en el tema y al final de la obra agradecieron el trabajo presentado. Una tarde genial.
