Have I opened your appetite yet?

This is a dish very common in the country side. In fact, it is very difficult to find a fine restaurant or at least a decent one here in the city serving it. One can see it in street markets or “comedores” makeshift, informal lunch shops, but rarely in malls or chain restaurants or fine dinning restaurants: big mistake, big mistake..

Caldo de Gallina or Hen Bouillon. Q35 or $4.5 U.S. of A. Dollars.
Want to know where to find this? Just ask.

The market in Chichicastenango, Guatemala is quite an event. Lots of crafts, lots of people, lots of tourists, and you’ll get pushed around if you obstruct the flow.

If you still had any doubts about how colorful Guatemala can be, with this photograph you should be 100% convinced.
