A Place to Rest

City Hall bench - Banca en la muni

Inspired by Pamela’s A Place to Rest, which shows a lovely resting area, I decide to follow up with a resting area in the City Hall building (Municipalidad is what people call city halls here, or la muni for short). This bench is on the second floor of this building —seen from the Parque Central—, and it is from this location that I snatched the Taxis photo for October 1st. This is an awesome place to watch the sunset or the rain.

Can you picture yourself sitting at this bench?

  • Oh wow, I’d love that (well, maybe a bit smaller one) in the hallway of a rustic house.

    Hey, you mean you don’t call town halls an ayuntamiento? I’m saddened, because I spent years trying to pronounce that word! 🙂

  • Oh, thanks for the link, by the way. Forgetting my manners here. (It’s early: coffee depravation.)

  • Yes, I can absolutely picture myself sitting there and just watching the world go by and saying hello to passerbys…reading perhaps.

  • lovely bench. in our country it would be all scared and ugly with carving and names.

  • That is some beautiful craftsmanship. Rudy, you’ve showed us the iron workers workshop. Are you going to take us to a woodworker’s workshop, too?

  • Rudy,

    I don’t eat the big steaks, but I’m not much of a vegetarian. I need to study the photos of Guatemalan cuisine you have here, then head for the nearest Guatemalan restaurant, which, this being L.A., shouldn’t be too difficult. I’ll let you know how it goes.
