    Great Picture Rudy! I was not there on weekend! What a bummer. Hopefully next time.
    I am still hoping you will send me the info I asked you about.
    have a great day. It is snowing here…

    RUDY! I’m not sure if I’m speechless or to scream! This is mind-blowing.

  • Sompopo

    Cool shot. I bet I have one of everything they are selling and then some. 🙂

  • Wow, eye candy! Very vibrant…

  • Javier

    This is gorgeus. You are making me cry…I cannot wait to go back to Guate next year. Thanx Buddy there isn’t a single day that I don’t check your photos.

  • Ay, ay, ay!! Que bonita! I love folk arts and crafts, and I especially lust after textiles. Don’t ask me why, I don’t even sew!

  • Enrico: Sorry about the weather in Colorado… it is nice and chilly here. Although I do miss the snow. Remind again the info you asked about.

    Kate: Guatemalan textiles and handicrafts are very vivid and colorful.

    Meg: This is everyday life here.

    Sompopo: I am sure you could open up your handicraft store now.

    Isabella: Talk about eye candy… I can not finish to digest your bougainvillea photo.

    Javier: Thanks for your returning visits. I do hope to make it more painful for you… Come on Javier with the prices you can get in the U.S., you could fly to Guatemala every months. 😉

    Marie: I am glad your picking up your mom’s tongue very easily. Me da mucho gusto verla de nuevo por aquí y me alegra mucho que ya tenga una maquina nueva. Lastima que no sea una Mac. 🙁

  • I was recently in Antigua where I met Joe Andres Chagual (or Chaguai)in a small handicrafts shop on 3ra Avenida y 3ra Calle Oriente. I’m not sure of the spelling of his name as he wrote it down hurriedly. My bus was about to leave. I wanted to buy several things I had chosen but I had little cash and he didn’t take VISA. It was a big disappointment for both of us. I promised him I would find a way.
    Can you tell me how to get in touch with him and order merchandise? Also how reliable is the shipping from Antigua to the USA? Thank you for any information you can send me.
