Volcanic Sand at Monterrico by Rudy Girón

I have never understood why so many tourist and travelers love experience the Monterrico beach; I mean there over a dozen beaches just like it in the Guatemalan Pacific coast, Sipacate and Las Lisas come to mind right away. Heck, Monterrico was suggested, not too long ago, as one of the best destinations in Latin America. So, why Monterrico, can you help understand why?

I found this little girl in zona 1 and could not resist taking a picture. I thought it looked very adventurous and clever standing there on their own.

What would attract her attention?

Encontré a esta pequeña niña en la zona 1 y no podía dejar de tomarle una fotografía. Me pareció que se veía muy aventurera y muy lista parada ahí por su cuenta.

This little girl was barely reaching the edge of the cabinet in which exhibited some objects that I guess she was interested.

Ideally this post would appear accompanied by some quote or text related to curiosity, but I decided to delegate this task to you kind readers, I look forward to the texts you want to share with us 😉

Playing in zigzag

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

These gardens are located just in front the Palacio Nacional de la Cultura in zona 1, today you could find several children playing on them.

Did you know that today it would be impossible to build the Palacio Nacional with the money that was made ​​at the time? two and a half million quetzales.

Another important factor was that the labor force that was used in that time was public employees and prisoners. The best known artists of the country were responsible for decorating with accessories such as balconies, floors, ceilings and many other details that you can find today.

The main photo is a representation slightly ironic but true, is a representation of our reality. Today is possible to play in front the Palacio, in another era, the military prisons that were in the building was not a matter of game, believe me.

You knew that the virtues of the man and of good government are represented in the presidential balcony?
