Playing Chess at the Mall

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised of finding out that something else actually could be done in this commercial boxes. Several groups of people gather at the end of the day at this mall located at Vista Hermosa Boulevard just to play chess. And It gets better, in the same area of the chess players, there’s a pianist playing a few tunes. Which makes all the scene even more enjoyable.

Vista Hermosa Boulevard and The Social Dynamics

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

It’s both curious and sad how Guatemala City works. How everybody moves through it, and how they react to it. Three hundred thousand people use this main boulevad at zona 15 every day.  It’s caos if you’ll ask me.

Not everyone that makes use of it lives in the area, theres a great deal of people that come here early in the morning in a crappy public trasnsport system, for eight hours of work five days a week (the lucky ones) and they leave by the end of the daylight.

Moving around the city four hours a day to work eight, doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.  Hell, that’s not healthy, it’s insane.

I just read that one of every four guatemalan citizens has some kind of mental disorder.  I wonder why…

Bowling time

Usually Sunday is a time to rest and spend time with the family.  Some spend it in the movies, others going out to restaurants, some visiting  relatives or in this case, bowling is the preferred choice.

Paseo Cayalá

Friday, July 27th, 2012

I’m still trying to understand this place. I’m so confused.  Perhaps the biggest advantage is that it’s not just a shopping center and traditional housing project. Occasionally there are interesting art exhibitions. Also, I saw some cafes and restaurants that may be useful for work and meetings.  But is not the only project, this whole area is constantly growing.  I’ll show you more in the future.

Do you know Cayalá?  What do you think?

Sports in Zona 15

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

I’m always pleasantly surprised with the kind of people who will get up early in the morning on weekends and play sports.  Softball in this case.  I was expecting very good players, but maybe it was some kind of company tournament, when young people play in regular leagues, could be more exciting.  It’s a nice and different way to spend a Sunday in zona 15, Guatemala City.
