Guate Pride by Eddie Deleon

As I previously mentioned, many Guatemalans living in the United States return home during holidays. Many come with their whole families, including some with sons and daughters who are visiting Guatemala for the first time. This year one of them was Hector, my nephew, who was born and lives in Wisconsin. It was great to see him in his “natural habitat” and his Guatemalan pride in full display.
