The Small House Movement in Guatemala

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

The small house movement is a popular description for the architectural and social movement that advocates living in small homes. It is particularly vocal in the USA, where the book “The Not So Big House” is credited with starting the backlash against supersized homes. +wikipedia

I’ve been thinking seriously about starting one of these projects. All this social nonsense about having a huge house to live isn’t my cup of tea.  So, I remembered this construction that I found a few months ago in Xela.  I don’t even know if there’s people interested in Guatemala City, living already with all this philosophy.  Maybe it’s time to find out.  What do you think?  Do you know someone with this lifestyle?

You’re Not Alone

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

The girl on the right of the photograph was heading to his young audience, indicating the following activity: Each one of them should find one child on the street, take them to a separate location and offer them their friendship, letting them know they are not alone and can count on them.

I heard that and it seems exciting, more people should be doing exactly that. What do you think about the activity they were about to perform?

Semana Musical: Patza

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

She is a charismatic artist, must be seen live. The most ordinary lyrics told in the right way acquire another taste. A pleasant experience and of course I hope to see her live again whenever is possible!

You know, we have some internal guidelines on the Daily Photo community in Guatemala, but the rules are made ​​to be broken, right?

There is something magical about sharing a daily photo, there is a story involved, genuine interest, and let me tell you, if you find it, you should not let it go so easily.

That reality does not escape what is happening in our daily photo community. You can see that spark and is now clearer than ever. Rudy and Luna in each of its cities are working every day to make that passion a reality, now I have witnessed that. And I’m sure the previous argument does not escape the other contributors.

Life is a journey, enjoy while you’re at it 😉
