Human statues

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

One of my favorite place is Zone 1; recently I walk every day through “La Sexta” (Six Street of Zone 1) and I see so many things happening: people walking fast, couples slowly, encounters, children playing around or elderly people getting together, there´s an amazing feeling I can touch Guatemala at a glance.

One of the entertainments and ways of collecting money now is by representing human statues. I am amazed by how people really enjoy it. Sometimes they see a cowboy or an elegant lady, others a pirate or an artist; when the statue comes to life (if someone leaves money) people start laughing, particularly children. Sometimes the audience looks at the human statue with a suspicious look as in “What is he going to do now?!”
